2020 Democratic Primaries

Biden projected to win coveted Michigan primary

Former Vice President Joe Biden is projected to win Michigan's Democratic primary, Tuesday's biggest prize.

With 76.9 percent of precincts reporting, Biden has 53 percent of the vote, compared to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) with 38 percent. Michigan has 125 delegates, and losing there is a devastating blow for Sanders, who in 2016 defeated Hillary Clinton in the state's primary.

Biden is also projected to win the Mississippi and Missouri primaries. Six states hit the polls on Tuesday, with 352 total delegates up for grabs.
