While other states vote, Sanders to rally in West Virginia

(AP) — With primary elections taking place in other states, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is heading to West Virginia for a rally.

The U.S. senator from Vermont will speak in Huntington on Tuesday evening at Big Sandy Superstore Arena.

At stake Tuesday are 384 delegates in primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

His Democratic competition, Hillary Clinton, can't win enough delegates Tuesday to knock Sanders out officially. But she can erase any lingering doubts that she will soon be the nominee.

West Virginia's primary election is May 10.
