Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday called on Wisconsin to delay its presidential primary, which is scheduled for next week. "The state should delay Tuesday's vote, extend early voting and work to move entirely to vote-by-mail," said the Vermont senator, who is challenging former Vice President Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination. Biden has a comfortable lead over Sanders in delegates and in polls of Wisconsin voters. Wisconsin officials have resisted calls to move the contest, prompting lawsuits.
