Biden wins big in Lunenburg County

Lunenburg County’s election results from Tuesday’s Democrat Presidential Primary went overwhelmingly for Joe Biden. The former vice-president received more than 71% of the vote.

Biden’s 874 votes handily defeated Bernie Sanders who finished second with 171 votes, 14%. Michael Bloomberg, who spent $18 million in advertising money in Virginia alone, was third with 94 votes, 7.7%.

Bloomberg ended his candidacy Wednesday morning after a disappointing Super Tuesday showing.
