Tulsi Gets First Delegate, from Her Place of Birth No Less
Yes, the results from American Samoa are in, first to report 100% on Super Tuesday, and Tulsi is on the board, with over 20% of the vote, in second place behind (surprise) Michael Bloomberg, who also earns his first delegates tonight. Biden, Sanders and Warren didn't hit the 15% viability threshold and are shut out.
Bloomberg 49.86% 5 delegates
Tulsi 29.34% 1 delegate
Sanders 10.54% 0 delegates
Biden 8.83% 0 delegates
Warren 1.42% 0 delegates
Now, if the DNC sticks to the same criteria for the upcoming debate as they had for the last three, one delegate should be sufficient for Tulsi to return to the debate stage. Of course, they've been known to change the rules in the middle of the game before, but this time it looks like they won't have the excuse of too many candidates, particularly if Liz drops out if she can't win her home state.
