Joe Biden has won the Maine Democratic primary, according to AP.

Why it matters: It's the last Super Tuesday primary to be called and further adds to Biden's delegate lead.

But Biden saw a huge day-of voting surge after Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar suspended their campaigns and endorsed the former vice president hours before polls opened.
