Depending on the outcome of tonight’s Kentucky Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders may take away a particularly funny title as the Democratic nominee for every Clinton county in the country.
Out of the 9 counties in the U.S. named “Clinton,” Sanders has so far won every one. Tonight brings the final Clinton county located in Kentucky. Kentucky’s Clinton county could be lost to Sanders, though, as it borders two Clinton-leaning counties in Tennessee.
There is just one Sanders county (and apparently no Bernie counties) located in Montana. If Sanders runs away with all 9 Clinton counties, Hillary will have to wait until June 7 to get her small measure of payback.
Hillary may have more votes, delegates, and states won, but she can never live down the shame of losing all nine Clinton counties to the Bern. For whatever it’s worth, at least it’s funny.
