14 states, American Somoa, and Democrats abroad vote Tuesday on their pick for the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.

After claiming two wins in the first three states to vote, Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders entered “Super Tuesday” with a slim lead over former Vice President Joe Biden in the overall delegate count.

Still, Biden took home victory Saturday in South Carolina, his first ever presidential primary or caucus win across three presidential campaigns, leading to a run of high-profile endorsements including former primary candidates Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke. (RELATED: Joe Biden Claims Victory In South Carolina)

Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren was the only other candidate in the race to earn any delegates heading into Tuesday (7). Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard had consistently finished in the first four contests with less than 3% of the vote.

The biggest wildcard on Tuesday will be former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who has spent nearly $700 million of his $60 billion fortune on advertising campaigns after jumping into the race. Bloomberg had not yet appeared on any primary ballots before Tuesday, and despite his two lackluster debate performances, has moved into third place in a Real Clear Politics national polling average.

1,357 pledged delegates will be up for grabs on Tuesday. A candidate must earn 1,991 pledged delegates in order to secure the nomination ahead of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee. (RELATED: Sanders, Biden, Bloomberg Have Paid Combined $466,000 To Superdelegates)
