The Latest: Sanders wins Wyoming, Trump visits 9/11 memorial

- Bernie Sanders may have won the Wyoming caucus, but in terms of delegates it was a draw.

Sanders split the state's delegates evenly with Hillary Clinton. Each picked up seven.

Democratic contests award delegates in proportion to the vote, so even the loser gets some. In Wyoming, Sanders' victory with 56 percent of the vote wasn't enough to secure an additional delegate over Clinton.

That means barely a change in the overall delegate count.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders' campaign in New York is getting some help from moviemaker Spike Lee, singer and activist Harry Belafonte and Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner, who was killed by New York police.

Lee has produced a new TV spot that features Belafonte, Garner and other advocates for minorities endorsing Sanders' efforts on behalf of people of color.

Belafonte is quoted as saying "People of color have a deeply vested interest in what Bernie Sanders brings to us in this election."

Hillary Clinton has been drawing lopsided support from minorities in the Democratic primaries and caucuses, and Sanders is trying to reverse that trend.

To date, Clinton has 1,286 delegates based on primaries and caucuses to Sanders' 1,037.

And in Lower Manhattan, Donald Trump visited the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum.

The Republican presidential front-runner arrived shortly after noon and spent about 30 minutes touring the museum.

He left without speaking to members of the media who were invited along for the visit by the campaign.

Trump has criticized rival Ted Cruz for comments that Cruz made at a GOP debate criticizing New York values.

In defending his home city, the Republican front-runner has pointed to New York's response to the Sept. 11 attacks.

And according to 9/11 Memorial spokesperson Michael Frazier, Trump donated $100,000 to the museum on Saturday.
