In a landslide win, Bernie Sanders took Idaho's democratic caucus Tuesday night.

Final announcements were made around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. 

Just under 24,000 votes were cast from around the state. Sanders dominated with 18,640 or 78 percent of the vote. Hillary Clinton came in a far second with 5,065 or 21 percent of the vote. 

In Ada County, long lines forced the caucus to be delayed for nearly two hours. Sanders swept the Ada County Caucus with an 80 percent win over Clinton. 

Of the 27 delegates,  23 were up for grabs Tuesday. Those will be split up proportionally between the two candidates.
