Joe Biden takes aim at front-runner Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday

Former Vice President Joe Biden was projected the victor of the Tennessee Democrat Primary on Tuesday by the Associated Press and Fox News less than two hours after the majority of the polls closed at 7:00 p.m. central time.

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. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) being projected to finish ahead in Texas, Colorado, Maine, Utah and Vermont.

Mike Bloomberg won his first and only primary in the USA territory of American Samoa, securing five delegates.

With more than one-third of all convention delegates on the line, voters in 14 states and American Samoa cast their ballots in the Democratic race on Tuesday.

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 won the Republican primary, as projected.

Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., dropping out of the 2020 Democratic race and endorsing him just one night before Super Tuesday. Bernie Sanders' momentum, which had put the candidate with socialist policies on the road to the White House, in turn spooking Wall Street. Elizabeth Warren of MA has eight delegates, while former NY mayor Mike Bloomberg will appear on many state ballots for the first time.

His Super Tuesday victory lap - which liberal pundits quickly dubbed #JoeMentum - was somewhat tempered by Sen.

The Biden campaign anxious that the billionaire media mogul could split the moderate vote and give Sanders an edge in the race for the delegates who will choose the Democratic presidential nominee.

At the time, Bloomberg's internal campaign data showed Biden struggling in the primary, and the path for Bloomberg looked much clearer.

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.

In addition to Biden, Bloomberg will have to fend off Sens.

He also got a boost from his major moderate rivals on the eve of the Super Tuesday vote, with Pete Buttigieg, a 38-year-old former mayor who had been seen as a rising star in the party, and Sen.
