BY Joseph Rachman   /  18 March 2020

With the latest Democrat primary results in, Joe Biden looks to have sown up his party’s nomination just as coronavirus’ disruptions start to take their toll. While primary elections still went ahead in Florida, Arizona, and Illinois on Tuesday, primary voting was abruptly cancelled in Ohio and is being resecheduled. Other states look set to follow suit.

Still, with almost all the votes counted Joe Biden has racked up a substantial lead over Bernie Sanders. Their delegate totals now stand respectively at 1,147 and 861, with 1,991 needed for a majority.
