So we're waiting for the results to come in from Wisconsin, Hawaii and drum roll... Washington. Say what? Haven't we already heard from the home of Microsoft and the Melvins? Indeed, yes, but Washington has both a caucus and a primary, for reasons you would need to get a PhD in state politics to work out.

The Republicans are awarding around 20 of their 40 delegates from the primary, but who would care now? The Democrats dealt with the anomaly by setting the clock back to zero, awarding no delegates and holding the thing anyway – remembering of course that all primaries are for a whole slate of candidates for a wide variety of offices, down to, for example in Illinois on big Tuesday, a particularly fierce fight for the water catchment area supervisor positions.
