Update: Former Vice President Joe Biden defeated Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Michigan primary, a result that could be devastating for the senator from Vermont.

  • Biden is projected to win Missouri after Sanders nearly beat Hillary Clinton there in 2016
  • Biden is projected to win Mississippi, as expected
  • Older voters continued to break for Biden in a big way, and younger voters for Sanders
  • Biden continued to dominate with voters whose primary issue is beating Trump

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden came out of the gate hot on Tuesday’s primary night, fortifying his national lead on the strength of his support from the black community.

The former vice president took home wins in Mississippi and Missouri, two states with significant African-American populations, the Associated Press projected just minutes after polls closed in those two states.

The early results spell more bad news for Sen. Bernie Sanders, whose campaign has so far shown an inability to break through with a significant number of black voters. A quick call in Missouri is particularly jarring for the campaign, because Sanders narrowly lost that state to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
