It’s that time again, sports fans. Enough with the penny-ante action. It’s time to start primarying in earnest, at least on the Democratic side.
Fourteen states are holding primaries today, including the big prizes of California, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. Bernie Sanders has been very competitive in the last couple of weeks in three of those five, and California in particular may continue to hold interest until past decent people’s bedtime on the East Coast.
But AP is already projecting a win for Joe Biden in North Carolina. [Update: at the top of the hour (8 PM EDT), Biden is projected to win Alabama and Virginia as well.] We are to believe, apparently, that he’s suddenly raised $15 million just in the last three days, on the strength of his win in South Carolina and the withdrawal of Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar from the race.
We’ll see how it goes. Strap in, folks. There’s a sense that this may go pretty fast.
Oh, and Donald Trump is projected to win in all the Republican primaries.
