Biden Bests Sanders in Boston on Way to MA Victory; Warren Places Third Citywide in Primary

Former Vice President Joe Biden won the Democratic Party primary on Super Tuesday in Massachusetts, and surprisingly took Boston, too. Biden (43,210) won best by a mere 56 votes over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (43,154) in Boston. So each candidate took about 30 percent, but Biden 144,200 total votes were cast in the Democratic Party primary. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who was supported by many Massachusetts politicians, placed third with 39,188 votes, and third overall in the state, too. The results were very disheartening for the Massachusetts senator, who many thought would win her hometown state, even as Biden's campaign flourished in the last few days.
