As it happened: Texas win seals stunning Super Tuesday comeback for Joe Biden
A resurgent Joe Biden has won at least nine of the 14 states that voted to pick a Democratic White House candidate on Super Tuesday, with Bernie Sanders projected to win the biggest prize of the night, California.
- Sanders had been the clear leader and was looking for a knock-out blow on a day when nomination contests were held across 14 states.
- Instead, Biden was projected to win in Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas, Massachusetts and even Minnesota – a state where Sanders had been expected to win handily.
- Sanders claimed wins in his home state of Vermont, Colorado, Utah – with exit polls also pointing to a win in the biggest delegate-rich state of all, California.
- It was a disappointing night for Elizabeth Warren, who trailed Biden and Sanders in her home state of Massachusetts, while Michael Bloomberg failed to win a single state despite record spending.
