The conventional wisdom was that Biden wouldn't be able to capitalize on his SC blowout because his campaign was broke and he had little ground organization in the 14 states voting on Tuesday. Sanders handily won his home state of Vermont and later racked up wins in Colorado and Utah, Fox News projects.
Mike Bloomberg won his first and only primary in the U.S. territory of American Samoa, securing five delegates.
Only Biden, Sanders, Warren, Bloomberg and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who has failed to qualify for any recent debates, officially remain in the race.
President Donald Trump easily won the Republican Party primary as expected.
Super Tuesday puts up for grabs over a third of the total delegates, including the 415 in California and 228 in Texas. A candidate needs to acquire 1,991 delegates heading into the Democratic National Convention to secure the nomination. Bernie Sanders in second place with 24 percent of the vote, according to Real Clear Politics.
Bernie Sanders thanked his supporters in Vermont and assured them that he will clinch the Democratic nomination at the party's convention in July. Going into Super Tuesday, Sanders held a slight lead over Biden because of his success in earlier primaries, or nominating contests.
"We can not beat Trump with the same old kind of politics". Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg suddenly dropped out and endorsed Biden, along with a number of other prominent Democrats - including top national security figures from the Obama administration. In fact, Biden's victory margin over Bernie Sanders in Virginia, 30 points, proved as decisive as it had been in SC.
Buttigieg, who dropped out of the race on Sunday, has 26 pledged delegates.
She was also running well behind Mr. Biden and Mr. Sanders in Oklahoma - a state that became a central part of the story she shared about her upbringing on the campaign trail. "Another candidate voted for the war in Iraq". Biden, on the other side, has been consolidating the moderate vote with endorsements from former Democratic candidates.
Even so, the outcome looked to be far from the resounding showing that Bloomberg, who spent more than $200 million on ads for Super Tuesday alone, was looking for.
In his statement announcing his decision, Bloomberg said he has worked over the years with Biden and the former vice-president is committed to fighting for gun safety, health care, climate change and good jobs.
