Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won the Maine Democratic caucus on Sunday, as projected by The Associated Press.

It was the eighth state victory for the Democratic presidential hopeful over his rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sanders won the caucus due to large voter turnout across the state, defeating Clinton by a 2-to-1 margin. According to local news reports, voters waited in long lines to participate in the caucus.
