Sen. Bernie Sanders hailed his grassroots movement on Saturday evening as "unstoppable" after he was projected to win the Nevada Democratic primary caucus.

The big picture: Nevada, a state with a diverse population, was the first real test of how candidates could connect with people of color. Sanders tweeted: "Our multiracial, multigenerational movement is not only going to win in Nevada. It is going to sweep this country." His 2020 rivals gave mixed reactions as results poured in.

A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.
What they're saying:
  • President Trump tweeted, "Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates. Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!"
    • The president later quoted in a Twitter post Fox News' Jon Scott saying, "The Kremlin is reportedly backing Bernie Sanders bid to win the White House" — in reference to a report that Russia had attempted to assist in Sanders' 2020 campaign. "Why didn't somebody tell me this?" Trump added.
  • Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted, "While not every vote in Nevada has been counted yet, one thing is clear: our comeback starts here. Now, we’re headed to South Carolina where we’re all-in to win." He later told supporters: "I ain’t a socialist. I ain’t a plutocrat. I’m a Democrat — and I'm proud of it."
  • Former Southbend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said during his caucus-night speech, "Before we rush to nominate Senator Sanders as our one shot to take on this president, let’s take a sober look at what is at stake for our party, for our values and for those who have the most to lose. ... Senator Sanders believes in an inflexible, ideological revolution that leaves out most Democrats, not to mention most Americans."
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren congratulated Sanders during a town hall in Seattle and thanked her supporters "for keeping me in the fight, saying: "I’m not in this fight to talk about change. I am in this fight to make change."
  • Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg's campaign said in a statement. "The Nevada results reinforce the reality that this fragmented field is putting Bernie Sanders on pace to amass an insurmountable delegate lead. This is a candidate who just declared war on the so-called 'Democratic Establishment.'"
"We are going to need Independents AND Republicans to defeat Trump — attacking your own party is no way to get started. As Mike says, if we choose a candidate who appeals to a small base — like Senator Sanders — it will be a fatal error."
— Bloomberg campaign's statement
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar said from Minneapolis: "We have a great team down there, still working hard. They're counting the votes, but as usual, I think we have exceeded expectations."
  • Tom Steyer shared a video to Twitter of him telling supporters that he believed he'd do well in Nevada with official results yet to come in. He added to the post the comment, "Proud of everything we accomplished in Nevada. We're only gaining strength as the electorate gets more diverse and more representative of the country."

Scoop: Inside the GOP's plan to retake the House

House Republicans will reclaim their majority in 2022 by offering candidates who are women, minorities or veterans, a memo obtained by Axios says.

Why it matters: The document, drafted by a super PAC blessed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, names top Democrats to target — Jared Golden of Maine, Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania and Ron Kind of Wisconsin — and the type of Republican candidates to beat them.

Scoop: Trump talked out of early Ohio endorsement

Donald Trump had to be talked out of making an early endorsement in Ohio's 2022 U.S. Senate race, a sign of his eagerness to reengage politically, people familiar with the conversations tell Axios.

What we're hearing: The former president discussed endorsing former state GOP chair Jane Timken last week during a meeting at Mar-a-Lago with RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, but top advisers — including Donald Trump Jr. — urged him to wait.
