Joe Biden narrowly defeated Bernie Sanders in last week’s Democratic presidential primary in Washington state, according to projections from the Associated Press. The former vice president’s victory means he won five of the six states that held contests on March 10th.
Washington was one of six states that voted last Tuesday — including Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, North Dakota and Idaho — but was the last to have a winner declared Monday evening. Washington votes entirely by mail-in ballots. Biden secured victories in all states except North Dakota, which went to Sanders.
Ohio, Florida, Arizona and Illinois vote Tuesday.
