Former Vice President Joe Biden had a pep in his step as he went from campaign stop to campaign stop in Los Angeles on Super Tuesday.

While enjoying a chocolate chip ice cream cone at La Michoacana in East Los Angeles, Biden told reporters he was "really, really moved" by the endorsements he has received, including three major ones on Monday night; during a rally in Dallas, three former Democratic candidates — Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) — all announced they were supporting Biden.

"I feel good, I have so many good friends," he said. "These guys not only help in California, they help all over the country, so it means a great deal to me." Biden revealed he is "very superstitious," and didn't want to predict any primary wins, despite feeling "very good" about Texas, Virginia, and North Carolina. It turns out, he was right about Virginia and North Carolina — he is projected to win both states.
