TSR Politics: Former Vice President Joe Biden saw some major victories tonight in the states of Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi as Super Tuesday 2 comes to an end.
Six states held primaries today, with results still being determined in Idaho, North Dakota and Washington state. Those three states have a combined 123 delegates still up for grabs.
As Biden closes in on the party’s nomination, he also benefited today from the endorsement of former Democratic presidential hopeful AndrewYang. Biden celebrated his wins Tuesday night in Philadelphia by taking the opportunity to address Bernie Sanders’ supporters in hopes of unifying the Democratic party, according to CNN.
“I want to thank Bernie Sanders and his supporters for their tireless energy and their passion. We share a common goal, and together we’ll defeat Donald Trump. We’ll defeat him together,” Biden told supporters.
“We’re going to bring this nation together,” Biden said. “We’re regenerating a Democratic base, the Democratic Party.”
“The African American community,” Biden continued. “High school educated folks … labor, suburban women, veterans, firefighters, union members and so many more. People of every economic station. The poor, who are struggling, and they are struggling in this environment. The middle class, who worries about whether or not they’re going to be able to hang on and stay there, maintain economic security.”
Yang was just the most recent of Biden’s former 2020 rivals to endorse him. Others include South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Michael Bloomberg, Cory Booker and Kamala harris.
“Together, together we’re bringing this party together. That’s what we have to do,” Biden said. “Tonight we are a step closer to restoring decency, dignity and honor to the White House…That’s our ultimate goal.”
A number of states will be voting in the coming weeks in choosing Trump’s opponent.
