Former Vice President Joe Biden has won the Virginia Democratic primary with 99 delegates at stake, according to multiple media projections.

Why it matters: Polling throughout February showed a close race between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, but Biden saw a late surge after moderates Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar dropped out and endorsed him on Monday.

By the numbers:

With nearly 100% of precincts from today's vote reporting, per NYT:

  1. Biden: 53.3%
  2. Sanders: 23.1%
  3. Warren: 10.8%
  4. Bloomberg: 9.7%
  5. Gabbard: 0.9%
  • Biden also received endorsements from former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.
  • Roughly 4 in 10 Virginia voters decided at the last minute who to support, according to early exit polls from AP.

The big picture: Virginia is also a key swing state for Democrats in the 2020 general election. It showed progressive promise in 2017 after electing Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and in 2018 after flipping its state assembly blue.
