Fourteen states and one territory will hold nominating contests for the Democratic Party candidate for president on Tuesday, the most pivotal day on the presidential primary calendar.
More than 1,300 delegates — about a third of the total — are at play on Super Tuesday, more than on any other day in the primary election. The first polls close at 7 p.m. ET.
The results could prove consequential for the Democratic field, giving one candidate — possibly Bernie Sanders — a definitive lead in the race for the 1,991 delegates needed to secure the Democratic nomination. Or multiple candidates could qualify for delegates by getting 15 percent of the vote statewide and congressional districts, prolonging the primary and making the possibility of a contested convention more likely.
This is the big one guys and gals.
After this we might have an entirely different idea about the outcome of this primary.
Thus far we have Joe Biden winning both Virginia and North Carolina.
In no surprise to anyone Bernie Sanders won his home state of Vermont.
And oddly enough Michael Bloomberg won American Samoa.
As usual, I will update this post as new information becomes available.
Update: Joe Biden is now the projected winner of Alabama.
The other four states are still too close to call.
Update 2: Biden now the projected winner of Oklahoma, a state that Sanders won in 2016.
Update 3: Arkansas has now been called for Joe Biden.
This is clearly Joe’s night.
Update 4: This is a big win.

However Biden is projected to win Texas, so ultimately Joe will end up with more delegates.
