Biden won nine states, including Texas.
Over 1,300 delegates were in play on Super Tuesday for the 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidates after fourteen states, along with American Somoa, voted.
Former Vice President Joe Biden crushed everyone, leaving the day with almost 400 delegates so far.
Biden also took nine states, including Texas:
- North Carolina
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is projected to take California, the biggest prize, but it will not put a dent in Biden’s numbers. The total amount of delegates in California may not come out for a few days “because of the large number of mail-in ballots.”
Maine is still too close to call, but Biden is ahead at 33.9%. Sanders is in second at 33.1%.
In Los Angeles on Tuesday night, Biden told the crowd, “I’m here to report: We are very much alive!”
The results show the race is between Biden and Sanders. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), despite all the love from the media, came in third in her state!
I do not know if anyone is shocked by all of this considering Biden easily took home South Carolina. Then we saw former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) drop out of the race. They threw their support behind Biden at a rally on Monday night in Dallas, TX, along with former candidate Robert O’Rourke.
The Wall Street Journal spoke to a woman influenced by those rallying around Biden:
The rallying behind Mr. Biden and clearing of competitors in the party’s moderate wing played into the decision-making of Jennifer Felix, a 51-year-old real-estate agent from Alexandria, Va.
At her polling place in the city’s Old Town section, Ms. Felix said she voted for Mr. Biden after seeing the party come together in recent days.
“I think Joe Biden has the experience,” she said, noting that she considered Ms. Warren and Mr. Sanders to be too divisive.
