Joe Biden won the Monmouth County Democratic organization in a landslide victory over Bernie Sanders, winning 90% of the vote in a contest conducted by vote-by-mail ballots after coronavirus led to the cancellation of their March convention.

Biden defeated Sanders by an 84%-16% margin, 512 to 92.

He carried the 4th district by a vote of 360 to 75 (83%-17%) and the 6th district by an 85%-15% margin.

Biden has scored a series of lopsided victories at county conventions and screening committees since New Jersey Democrats began voting last month.

The former vice president won Sussex with 74% against Sanders, who defeated Hillary Clinton in the northwest New Jersey county by a 57%-43% margin in the 2016 primary election.

Biden has also scored party endorsements in Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Ocean, Passaic, Salem, Union and Warren counties.

Sanders has not won any intramural contests in New Jersey.

Three counties — Hudson, Morris and Somerset – have declined to endorse and are holding open primaries.
