Biden Bags Kansas Primary, Moves Closer to Nomination

Former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden moved closer to the nomination by winning the Kansas primary. The state party released the results.

Biden is waiting for his coronation as the nominee at the Democratic convention in Milwaukee. After Senator Sanders dropped out of the race last month and endorsed Biden, most of the top brass in the Democratic party have firmly come behind Biden.

Former President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have thrown their weight Biden. Obama even helped Biden secure key endorsements from Mayor Pete, Senator Klobuchar, and Beto O’Rourke before Super Tuesday on March 3.

The Kansas Primary

Despite Biden being the only candidate in the race, the Kansas Democratic Party received more than 145,000 ballots. Biden won the state with 76.9% of the vote. In second place stood Senator Sanders at 23.1%.

Despite dropping out, Sanders will carry the delegates he won to the convention. This news came after Biden and Sanders reached an agreement regarding the same.

To conduct the primary successfully during a pandemic, mail-in ballots became the default choice

The pandemic crisis has already led to the cancellation of the New York presidential primary in June.
