Bernie Sanders addressed a rally with nearly 15,000 people present in San Diego, California on Tuesday night. About 30 minutes into his nearly hour-long speech, Sanders said, "We will crush ISIS." He used more aggressive language regarding ISIS than he did earlier in the day in the wake of the Brussels attacks.

Hillary Clinton spoke at a rally in Seattle, Washington on Tuesday evening, where she acknowledged her victory in Arizona. Washington holds its Democratic caucuses on Saturday. Voters in Arizona, Washington and elsewhere, she said, "understand this is not just a contest between different candidates -- this is a contest between different fundamental views."

"What we saw today happen in Brussels reminds us how high stakes are," Clinton continued. "In the face of terror, America doesn't panic. We don't build walls or turn our backs on allies... What Trump and Cruz are suggesting is not only wrong, it's dangerous."

9 p.m. ET

Democratic voters in Arizona, Utah and Idaho on Tuesday choose between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination.

A total of 149 delegates are up for grabs from the Arizona primary and the caucuses in Utah and Idaho. The Idaho caucuses began at 7 p.m. MT and were slated to run until around 9 p.m. Polls close in Arizona at 10 p.m. ET, while the caucuses in Utah are expected to finish around 10:30 p.m. ET.

Sanders could do well in Utah and Idaho, given that Democrats in both states allow independent voters to participate. Additionally, the senator tends to do particularly well in caucuses (as compared to primaries). However, Clinton has done well in large states like Arizona.

CBS News' Jackie Alemany spoke with a handful of voters at a polling place in Scottsdale, Arizona, where most voters were in line to support GOP front-runner Donald Trump. Democrat Hillary Kaminsky said she is supporting Clinton because "she has the experience and can get it done." Rebecca Morris, a 23-year-old law student, said she and other young voters support Sanders because they are looking for "real change" when it comes to issues like diminished wages.

Ultimately, the delegate tally from Tuesday could be a wash: Utah has 33 delegates and Idaho has 23, while Arizona has 75 delegates up for grabs. Additionally, the delegates in the Democratic primary are awarded proportionally, rather than on a winner-take-all basis like some GOP contests.

Going into Tuesday, Clinton had amassed 1,580 delegates while Sanders had accumulated 819. A candidate needs 2,383 delegates to win the Democratic nomination.

Tuesday's contests come a week after a major day for Clinton: She had clean sweep of all five states voting last Tuesday (Ohio, Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Missouri) and widened her delegate lead over Sanders to a point some (including Clinton's campaign) have called insurmountable.

It remains to be seen whether voters in Arizona, Utah or Idaho will put more weight on national security concerns, given the bombings that occurred Tuesday morning in Brussels, Belgium.

Hillary Clinton told "CBS This Morning" that the attack is a "continuing reminder of how sophisticated the terrorists are," while reiterating her call for closer coordination between the U.S. and its counter-terrorism allies. Sanders said in a statement that the attacks were "another cowardly attempt to terrorize innocent civilians."
