Bernie Sanders secured two victories against Hillary Clinton on Saturday when he was declared the winner of both the Washington state and Alaska caucuses, according to the Associated Press (via NPR).

As of Sunday morning, Sanders had won 17 of Hawaii’s 25 delegates, with Clinton taking the remaining eight. Meanwhile, Sanders also won 25 delegates in Washington and 13 in Alaska. (Clinton nabbed nine and three, respectively.)

Before the caucus results came in, Clinton still had a significant lead over the Vermont senator (and friend-of-birds), with 1,697 delegates to his 976. (2,383 delegates are needed to win the nomination, with 2,092 still up for grabs.)

Next up, the Democratic candidates will battle it out for Wisconsin’s 96 delegates on Tuesday, April 5, and then the Wyoming caucus (with 18 delegates) will take place on Saturday, April 9.
