(FOX NEWS) – Joe Biden swept another round of delegate-rich contests Tuesday – winning in Florida, Illinois and Arizona – further cementing the former vice president as the dominant front-runner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination over Bernie Sanders as the coronavirus threat scrambles the primary calendar for the foreseeable future.
Florida and Illinois will award a hefty 219 and 155 pledged delegates, respectively, while Arizona is worth 67 delegates.
Together, the contests are likely to only add to the pressure on Sanders to reconsider his presence in the race.
Last week, he vowed to press on after a string of defeats, signaling he wants to continue to pressure Biden to embrace more progressive policies.
