Joe Biden has won the North Carolina Democratic primary, where 110 delegates are up for grabs, according to multiple media projections.

Why it matters: North Carolina is the most delegate-rich primary of any state that has voted thus far. It's also a state where billionaire Michael Bloomberg had poured more than $15 million into campaign advertising.

  • Biden likely received a late boost from Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg, moderates who suspended their campaigns and endorsed him just before Super Tuesday.

The big picture: North Carolina is a swing state that could be key to Democrats winning the White House in 2020. President Trump won the state by approximately 3.6% against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
