Sanders scored an early win in the first contest, held on March 1 in Wellington, New Zealand.

The victory gives Sanders nine pledged delegates, and Clinton will add four delegates to her commanding lead.

Despite Sanders’s overwhelming margin of victory, three of the Democrats abroad superdelegates have committed to supporting Clinton for the nomination at the party's national convention in July. Only one is backing Sanders.

And four other superdelegates from the Democrats abroad group remain uncommitted.
