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.

What do you think US Senator Elizabeth Warren ordered when she visited Grass Fed this past weekend in Jamaica Plain? The answer: A grilled cheese and tomato sandwich with a root beer float, according to Boston Magazine, who spoke with store supervisor Ida Khojandpour. Warren is definitely familiar with the JP cuisine scene, having poured beers at Doyle's Cafe in 2012. More recently, Warren supported one of Massachusetts' most famous food favorites: Dunkin' Donuts. In June, she brought a bunch of donuts to the US House Democrats at the US Capitol during a sit-in protesting bills blocked by House leadership to expand background checks to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns.
