The former US vice president has already won in eight states, and his main rival Bernie Sanders in three.
In the primary Super Tuesday election, former US Vice President Joseph Biden has won in eight states вЂ” Alabama, Arkansas, Virginia, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Massachusetts. This was reported on March 4 by Fox News.
Senator Bernie Sanders, his main rival, has so far won in Vermont, Colorado, and Utah, and is also predicted to be in the key state of California.
The outcome of the vote in the states of Maine and Texas has not yet been decided.
Recall that in the USA, delegates in 14 states and one overseas territory, American Samoa, are selected for the вЂњSuper TuesdayвЂќ, where, according to forecasts, the former mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, won.
Delegates are fighting for the votes of delegates (a total of 1.3 thousand), who at the upcoming national congress of the Democratic Party will support one candidate or another for nomination as a presidential candidate.
According to The New York Times, taking into account the preliminary results of the Super Tuesday, Biden became the leader in the number of delegates supporting him.
To nominate a Democratic presidential candidate in the first round of voting at the partyвЂ™s national congress on July 13-16 in Milwaukee (Wisconsin), the applicant must secure the vote of 1991 as a delegate.
Sanders was in the lead in four states before that day. Biden was in second place.
