A resurgent Biden, welcomes Super Tuesday, as he hopes to take the lead to become President

14 states, 1 territory, more than 1,300 delegates. Welcome to Super Tuesday

WASHINGTON – Super Tuesday is finally upon us.

Fourteen states and one U.S. territory will be voting Tuesday, accounting for more than 30% of the delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination.

And what a wild few days it has been.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is looking to continue his momentum after a blowout win in South Carolina Saturday. Also working in his favor? Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former mayor Pete Buttigieg, both seen as competitors for more centrist voters, have dropped out since Saturday, and thrown their support behind the former vice president.

But Biden faces an uphill battle against Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has been the frontrunner thus far in the campaign. Sanders leads the national delegate race and also leads polling in several key states, including California and Texas — two of the largest states with the most delegates up for grabs. Sanders has campaigned heavily in those states since winning the Nevada caucuses.

Biden, however, focused much of his campaign efforts in South Carolina. He is now playing catch up with Sanders and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, who opted out of competing in the early voting states to focus on Super Tuesday states. But Bloomberg has yet to win a single national delegate and was attacked harshly by his fellow candidates in two recent debates.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is also looking to make a splash, after slowly losing momentum over the past several weeks. She placed third in Iowa first-in-the-nation caucuses, but hasn’t placed in the top 3 since. But Warren has repeatedly said her campaign is built for the long haul and she might be looking to ride the race out until the convention in July.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard also remains in the race, though she has not won any delegates thus far and is polling in the low single digits.
