Super Tuesday: Biden Wins 9 States, Sanders Wins California & Voters Stand In Long Lines

Mar 3, 2020

On this edition of Your Call, we discuss Super Tuesday results and what's next. A total of 1,357 delegates were up for grabs.

No one could have predicted these results. Joe Biden swept the south and Elizabeth Warren's home turf of Massachusetts. According to her campaign, she does not plan to drop out. After a disappointing finish, Michael Bloomberg dropped out and endorsed Biden. Bernie Sanders is the declared winner in California, the cash cow of delegates, but it could take several weeks for counties to report full results. What do these results reveal and what's next?
