Senator Bernie Sanders was projected to win the primaries in his home state of Vermont, where there are 16 delegates up for grabs, in addition to Colorado, Utah and California.

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg won American Samoa, which has six delegates at stake. He has since suspended his presidential bid and endorsed Biden.

A total of 14 states and one territory voted in the Democratic primaries on Super Tuesday, where one third of the delegates are allocated.

In Tennessee, several polling sites in areas that were impacted by deadly tornadoes remained open longer than previously permitted during Super Tuesday.
