The rural Midway precinct gave 92 to Sanders, 76 to Clinton, 11 to uncommitted, 2 to O'Malley and 1 to Rocky De La Fuente, a San Diego businessman.

Countywide, Sanders got 1,918, or 47.68 percent; Clinton 1,862, or 46.28 percent; O'Malley 46, De La Fuente 10 and uncommitted 187. Clinton carried most Versailles precincts and those east of town.
