Biden wins Democratic primary in Michigan

News

DETROIT (AP) — Joe Biden has won Michigan’s Democratic presidential primary.

Michigan was the largest of the six states voting Tuesday, with 125 pledged delegates at stake.

Biden emphasized the Obama administration’s bailout of the auto industry, which saved thousands of jobs. He also counted on continued strong support among African American voters.

Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in Michigan’s 2016 Democratic presidential primary. Losing the state this year may greatly diminish his chances at the nomination.

Many voters are already looking ahead to November and whether President Donald Trump can again win in the state that, perhaps more than any other, catapulted him into the White House in 2016
