campaign 20-16 coverage tops channel 2 news at 5. good evening, i'm jennifer burton. thanks for joining us this evening. the "first-in-the-west" caucus was held across nevada today. here are the latest results: hillary clinton has been declared the winner, with 52-percent of the vote. bernie sanders received 47- percent of the vote. this means that hillary gained 19 delegates. bernie earned 15. this is without any superdelegate results. there are eight superdelegates in the silver state. meanwhile, democrats faced long wait times as they arrived at some caucus locations. the turnout was much bigger than expected, especially since the democratic party allowed people to register for the event on-site. one legal observer said there didn't seem to be a large enough number of new voters to be concerned about double caucusing. we have team coverage of today's caucuses. ryan canaday was in carson city and he will join us in the just a minute. but we'll start with erin breen, who was all over the

there today, wasn't it? that's a good word for it.... but really the problems were all with the checking in.... some who registered online had to wait in the general lines if they didn't have cell phones. and they could have used more volunteers helping, because the backlog meant for lines. and when i say lines...i mean serious lines... lines that crowded the hallways...wound around corners and led right out the door. lines that wore on those waiting in them. norma:"i thought it was a little disorganized and there was to use of automatic counting and technology that i think should david mandel:"the registration was slow they were all volunteers and they clearly could have had more training and practice i think." -----you go this way go that way...- the caucus we were following was

we moved. do we bring our chairs? the second room didn't work out we moved to the cafeteria. once we got settled there.. it went smoothly. there were a few undecideds to sway... urging ----okay times up. ----- ellen:" we had 140 people and both undecideds came over to the bernie side." doug:" it was a little scarey but they all had good points nad i'll vote for either one that gets the nomination." this political irony caught a few eyes. nathanial jones:"i got a few dirty looks when i came in but this is a knock off hat. i'm feelin the bern " it took longer to get in.... than to get through the process. and that concerned some. betty: in 5 minutes i will have been here for 3 hours this is the most ridiculous thing i've ever attended!" but there were those who felt it

what it was set out to do. ellen:" i thought it was fantastic. such a great turn out. ellen: this has been phenomenal!" there were 14 precints at mcqueen high school today. and it was amazing how fast things went after the bottleneck of registration was over. covering campaign 2016 erin breen channel 2 news. thanks erin-- but that wasn't all the caucus action from today. ryan canaday was down at carson city high school earlier. he joins us now live in the studio. ryan what was the caucus like in carson? jen organized chaos was the best description we heard while we were down there. organizers believe more than thirteen hundred people filed through the doors at carson high to caucus today, which was way more than originally expected.

than hillary people i really want hillary because i know she'll approve on the affordable care act. many of whom were caucusing for their very first time this is my first caucus, i've always done primaries new kind of interesting and different." others weren't so thrilled with the way the caucus was organized. my neighbors, some who i know, some who i don't all agree that we would rather be in a booth, where we are checking our nominee. everyone began the caucus process by registering at the door...they then split into one of thirteen separate precincts.. then once the final person walked through the door..the commotion died down...and everyone got down to business. "calm and somewhat organized, not back and forth too much at all." precinct leaders began by counting the amount of members in their group. "one, two, three, four" they would then split the room by support for bernie or hillary. "52 here, 38 here" after that, it was time for the
5:05 pm
determine the amount of delegates they could elect. "so the 2.3 for hillary, is rounded down to 2, 1.7 for bernie is rounded up, so it's two to two. and the delegate count ended up very close for all thirteen precincts. three pretty close to even, in our group hillary had a few more than the bernie supporters but it was very close to 50-50. but in the end, not even the long lines and commotion of cacucus day could keep could keep nevadan's from doing their part. they felt valued and part of the process and i think they'll do it again." it sure was a crazy and fun time down there in carson city today. be sure to stay with channel two news as we continue to follow caucus coverage and what the results mean for the state. covering campaign 20-16 live in two news primary season is heating up in south carolina -- as republicans cast their primary votes today. early results indicate it's a 3-
