Fox News and NBC News project that the Vermont senator has defeated Hillary Clinton in the state’s Democratic primary. The result is not a surprise, as Sanders led by several points in the polls. But the margin may be larger than that, if Decision Desk’s exit polls are any indication:

Correction: An earlier version of this post said Sanders’s victory was his seventh in the last eight contests.
