Biden wins whopping 71% of vote

Lunenburg County’s election results from the Tuesday, March 3, Democratic 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, March 4, after a disappointing Super Tuesday showing.

The state-wide results gave Biden a large victory with 53% of the vote. Sanders was second with 23%. Warren was third with 10.8% and Bloomberg was fourth with 9.7% of the vote.
