UNDATED (AP): It’s a significant Saturday in the 2016 presidential campaign as voters in the South and the West get their first say in the race.
While Republicans are voting in a South Carolina primary, Democrats are holding caucuses in Nevada.
The early vote count in Nevada, as well as polls of voters arriving at the caucuses, suggested a close race between the Democratic rivals. About two-thirds of voters said they were attending the caucuses for the first time, and they were slightly more likely to support Sanders.
The polling was conducted for AP and the television networks by Edison Research as voters arrived at 25 randomly selected sites.
