Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is projected to win the Utah Democratic primary with 29 delegates at stake, according to AP.

Why it matters: It's Sanders' third victory on a night that has been largely dominated by Joe Biden.

  • Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is also projected to pick up delegates.
  • Polling showed Sanders with a strong lead in Utah before Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg dropped out and endorsed Biden the day before Super Tuesday.
