Biden Wins, Sanders Lags: Calls to Shut Down Primaries & Debates

Former Vice President Joe Biden scored decisive primary victories Tuesday night in the key state of Michigan, along with Missouri, Mississippi, and Idaho.

Sanders won North Dakota and holds a lead in Washington state, but votes are still being counted, and the races are still too close to call.

While Biden is less than halfway to the delegates he would need to secure the Democratic nomination, Sanders faces a decision about whether to continue his increasingly uphill fight for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

This comes as Biden and Sanders called off their planned campaign rallies in Cleveland on Tuesday because of concerns over the coronavirus, which continues to spread, and Trump announced a new rally.
