Sanders last week won the support of Wisconsin superdelegate and state Rep. David Bowen after winning the state's primary.

In a statement, Bowen wrote that the voters in Wisconsin decided "they desire the political revolution Bernie Sanders speaks about."

“I want to ensure our members’ voices are respected to ensure our Party is as strong as possible by the November election," he wrote in a statement on his Facebook page.

Sanders extended his winning streak Saturday in Wyoming. He has won seven of the past eight state contests and is hoping his success will help him garner the support of more superdelegates.
