Read Live Updates On The March 10 Democratic Primaries: Biden, Sanders Face Off

Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota and Washington went to the polls Tuesday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden won four states as he continued to march toward the Democratic nomination on a night six states voted and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) fought to remain competitive in the two-man race.

Biden was declared the winner in Missouri and Mississippi immediately after polls closed. Shortly after, he was declared the winner in Michigan, a state Sanders won in 2016 and the state with the most delegates up for grabs this week. He later went on to take Idaho.

Biden thanked Sanders and his supporters in a speech Tuesday that was given just to a small group of reporters in Philadelphia after both candidates canceled campaign events due to growing concerns over coronavirus.

“To all those who have been knocked down, to all those who have been counted out, left behind, this is your campaign,” Biden said. “Just over a week ago many of the pundits declared that this candidacy was dead. Now we’re very much alive.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) is still campaigning despite having won only two delegates so far. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg dropped out last week after poor showings in the Super Tuesday primaries. Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) exited the race just before Super Tuesday, throwing their support behind Biden.

The states with primary elections Tuesday included:

  • Idaho, 20 delegates (Biden projected winner)

  • Michigan, 125 delegates (Biden projected winner)

  • Mississippi, 36 delegates (Biden projected winner)

  • Missouri, 68 delegates (Biden projected winner)

  • North Dakota, 14 delegates (polls closed)

  • Washington, 89 delegates (polls closed)
