It was another Tuesday and another big day for Joe Biden, as the former VP won primaries in Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi, paving the way for his nomination as the Democratic candidate for president.
Biden was so dominant, calls for Senator Bernie Sanders to pack it in have grew louder, as Democrats want to unify the party to do battle with Donald Trump in November.
Biden was the projected winner in Idaho, too, while Sanders had a healthy lead in North Dakota, based on partial returns. The two candidates were neck-in-neck in Washington state, with about two-thirds of the votes counted.

“It looks like we’re going to have another good night. We have victories in Mississippi, Missouri, Michigan and we’re waiting to hear from North Dakota, Idaho and Washington State.”
Speaking in Philadelphia, Biden sounded like he was trying to court Sanders supporters, by thanking them for “their tireless energy and passion,” adding, “We share a common goal and together we’ll defeat Donald Trump. We’ll defeat him together.” (Los Angeles Times)
