Though Hillary Clinton swept Super Tuesday II, Bernie Sanders virtually tied her in both Illinois and Missouri, salvaging delegates in every state: 64 in Illinois, 60 in Florida, 38 in Ohio, 35 in Missouri and 26 in North Carolina. In total, Sanders will finish Super Tuesday II with over 250 pledged delegates. The Senator is down, but neither morally nor mathematically out.

* An earlier version of this article reported that Sanders won Missouri. 99 percent of the way into the vote count, Clinton made a last minute comeback.
