Former Vice President Joe Biden is the projected winner of Virginia and North Carolina's Democratic Primary, CBS News is projecting.

CBS News said in Virginia, 51% of Democratic voters voted for Biden as the best candidate to beat President Trump in the 2020 presidential elections.

Nearly half of Virginia Democratic primary voters also decided on their votes in the last few days, CBS News said.

His victory came as polls began to close in some states on Super Tuesday. Voting is underway elsewhere in the country, including California, the night’s biggest prize.

Virginia has 99 delegates at stake. It has been considered a tossup state that is increasingly moving to the left.

North Carolina has 110 delegates up for grabs.

The results of the Democratic primary in Virginia, with its diverse electoral terrain of rural, urban, and suburban voters, could be a key indicator of which Democrat will be chosen to face President Donald Trump in the general election.
