Biden again crushes Sanders in primary

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has steamrolled rival Bernie Sanders in primary elections in Florida, Illinois and Arizona.

Accelerating his momentum in the race, the former U.S. vice-president made a clean sweep in all three states.

Biden appealed for support directly to Sanders supporters.

With his hat-trick, Biden took another big stride towards becoming the Democratic candidate who will face President Donald Trump in November.

Biden won a smashing victory over Sanders in Florida, the biggest prize of the night with 219 delegates. The former vice-president won 62% of the vote and about 130 delegates. Sanders, with only 23%, took some 48 delegates, with the rest still to be distributed.

A Democratic candidate needs 1,991 delegates to clinch the nomination.
