By 11:15 PM EST, NBC News reported that Biden led 2020 rival Sen. Bernie Sanders by 13 percentage points with 62 percent of the vote counted.
Biden’s victory in the Grand Canyon State caps a night that saw the former vice president win all three states that were up for grabs, including Florida and Illinois. Ohio’s scheduled primaries for Tuesday were pushed back to June 2 at the last minute as a containment measure against the COVID-19 outbreak.
With Biden’s decisive wins on Tuesday night, 2020 rival Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) path to the nomination has shrunk considerably.
