The Northern Mariana Islands are Clinton country, apparently: Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic caucuses in the US Pacific Ocean territory, winning four delegates to two for Bernie Sanders, with 102 votes to 65 for the Vermont senator, ABC reports. She also has the support of one pledged superdelegate, while four remain unpledged. Northern Mariana Republicans vote on Tuesday. CNN notes that as in Puerto Rico, which is also classed as a US commonwealth, the 50,000 or so residents of the Northern Marianas do not have a vote in the general election, meaning the caucuses are as far as they go in the process of choosing a president.
