SAN ANTONIO – While Joe Biden claimed a Super Tuesday victory in Texas, Bernie Sanders won majority of the votes in Bexar County.
Sanders, who seized the biggest prize with a win in California, had 33% of the votes in Bexar County, according to county results. Biden followed with 28.6% of votes in the county.
Across Texas, Biden won 32% of the vote, while Sanders won 29%, as of 9 a.m. Wednesday with 99% of polling locations reporting.
As ballots are continuing to be counted, it appears that the Democratic Party’s presidential field has transformed into a two-man contest. Just a week ago, the race featured a half-dozen candidates, including Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar who dropped out ahead of Super Tuesday.
Biden and Sanders, lifelong politicians with starkly different visions for America’s future, were battling for delegates as 14 states and one U.S. territory held a series of high-stakes elections that marked the most significant day of voting in the party’s 2020 presidential nomination fight.
It could take weeks — or months — for the party to pick one of them to take on President Donald Trump in the November general election.
Trump received 75,454 votes in Bexar County and 1,871,513 votes in Texas.
Also in Bexar County, Elizabeth Warren had 12% of the vote and Michael Bloomberg had 15% of the vote.
