Biden sees Super Tuesday surge

Former Vice President Joe Biden had a good night in the Super Tuesday primary states, picking up Texas, Minnesota and at least seven other states, including Elizabeth Warren’s home state of Massachusetts.

Senator Bernie Sanders is now slightly behind Biden in the delegate count, but won California, Utah, Colorado and Vermont in last night’s contest.

Michael Bloomberg and Elizabeth Warren picked up a few delegates in states/territories that split their delegate counts, although neither won a state. Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard also picked up on delegate in American Samoa.

So now the delegate count stands at 404 for Joe Biden, 340 for Bernie Sanders, 36 for Warren and 12 for Bloomberg.

Biden celebrated his good night, addressing supporters in California and telling them “We are very much alive!”

President Trump took to Twitter to talk about last night’s results, hitting Elizabeth Warren hard for staying in the race.

“The Democrat establishment came together and crushed Bernie Sanders, AGAIN! Even the fact that Elizabeth Warren stayed in the race was devastating to Bernie and allowed Sleepy Joe to unthinkably win Massachusetts. It was a perfect storm, with many good states remaining for Joe!,” he tweeted.

The Warren campaign seems to be pressing on, sending out a message to supporters saying, “There are six more primaries just one week away, and we need your help to keep up the momentum.”

Sen. Sanders seems optimistic about next Tuesday’s primaries, telling supporters in Los Angeles, “We were told, well, when you got to Super Tuesday, it’d be over. Well, it may be over for the other guy!”

Idaho, Washington, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, and North Dakota vote on March 10.
