Hillary Clinton Poised to Make Weird Kind of History on June 7

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Our own Tim Murphy, in a triumph of data journalism, reports that if Bernie Sanders “can beat Hillary Clinton in Kentucky’s Clinton County, he will have defeated Clinton in all nine of the Clinton Counties in the United States.” I have to admit that would be pretty awesome.

But! If Hillary Clinton can beat Bernie Sanders in Montana’s Sanders County on June 7, she will have defeated Sanders in all of the Sanders Counties in the United States. Also awesome. Though perhaps not as awesome as the fact that Montana has two counties right next to each other named Phillips and Petroleum.
