Biden Takes Texas — Sweeping Southern States on Super Tuesday


Former Vice President Joe Biden swept to victories across the Southern states on Super Tuesday, winning the second-largest prize — Texas after running neck-and-neck in the Lone Star state against his top rival Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Shortly before 1 a.m., with 89% of the vote in, the Associated Press called Biden the winner in Texas, with his 33.27% lead over Sanders’ 29.78%, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 14.97% and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s 11.59%.

“It’s a good night, a good night,” Biden told supporters at a rally in Los Angeles Tuesday evening. “They don’t call it Super Tuesday for nothing.”
