Senator Bernie Sanders scored a decisive victory Saturday in the Democratic presidential caucuses in Nevada, riding a wave of support from young voters, union members and Latinx voters, who strengthened his status as front-runner.
His win shows the potential for the nation’s largest minority group to reshape the next stage of the Democratic presidential race.
In the next four weeks, six more of the 12 states with a large Latinx population will vote in the Democratic primary.
On Super Tuesday, Texas, California and Colorado go to the polls. Arizona, Florida and Illinois will vote on March 17.

Her latest book is The Trouble with Unity: Latino Politics and the Creation of Identity.
