Why Did Joe Biden Win Texas?


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Jim Hightower, a National radio commentator, writer, public speaker, and New York Times best-selling author, twice elected Texas Agriculture Commissioner. His monthly newsletter is called The Hightower Lowdown.


One week ago an NBC News/Marist poll found Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders leading former Vice President Joe Biden almost two to one for the Democratic Presidential nomination in the Texas primary.

Sanders polled at 34% to Biden at only 19%. On Super Tuesday none of that held. It was Biden who won the Texas race with 34% of votes cast while Sanders came in at 30%.

A similar scenario played in various other Super Tuesday states affirming that the decision by centrist candidates Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg to back out and endorse Biden helped the former Vice President dramatically.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman.

RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
