Biden wins New Jersey

By Nikita Biryukov, July 07 2020 8:57 pm

New Jersey Democrats voted to make former Vice President Joe Biden their presidential nominee Tuesday.

The result was almost a foregone conclusion, as Biden became the party’s presumptive nominee after U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) ended his bid in early April.

Despite halting his campaign, Sanders remained on ballots in New Jersey and other states in a bid to secure delegates so he could affect the party’s platform.

Despite endorsements the candidate made for some progressive congressional challengers running in the state, Sanders’ position on the ballot had little impact.

Unlike Biden, he seldom bracketed with other candidates.

The former vice president will go on to face President Donald Trump in November.

Clarity on how many delegates, if any, Sanders won won’t come for at least a week.
