(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will receive more of Indiana’s pledged delegates after defeating Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential primary election.

The Indiana Democratic Party released the final delegate allocation for pledged delegates heading into the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on July 25-28.

Sanders won the Hoosier state primary 52 to 48 percent. He will receive 44 delegates to Hillary Clinton’s 39. The surprise win helped Sanders gain a little ground on Clinton as he tries to keep her from clinching the party’s nomination.

Abiding by the rules set by the Democratic National Committee, national delegates are proportionally awarded to both candidates based on the results of Tuesday’s primary.

“The Indiana Primary was an exciting time for the Indiana Democratic Party. From new voters joining the party to lifelong Democrats casting their votes, the enthusiasm and engagement we saw was a win for Indiana,” said John Zody, Chairman. “We are pleased to have 92 Hoosiers representing the great state of Indiana in Philadelphia. Hoosiers will join other Democrats from across the nation, and we will unite behind our Democratic nominee and help them defeat presumptive Republican Nominee Donald Trump this November.”

Of the 92 total national convention delegation for Indiana, 56 pledged delegates are split across Indiana’s nine congressional districts. Pledged delegates within each congressional district will be proportionally allocated according to the results within that specific district. Further, the 27 statewide pledged delegates will be divided proportionally according to the statewide results.

National convention delegates will be selected during the Indiana Democratic State Convent at the Indiana Convention Center on June 18.
