Former Vice President Joe Biden walked away with more delegates en route to the Democratic nomination as he won the Oregon Democratic Primary. As expected, the race was called moments after polls closed. Earning nearly 70% of the vote, Biden looked to be the clear winner. Sen. Bernie Sanders walked away with a fair share of votes. However, he suspended his campaign earlier this spring.
Moving forward, Biden will look to continue to gain momentum in key swing state’s as he prepares to battle Donald Trump in the fall. Currently, polls show Biden ahead in key states such as Oregon, Arizona, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

One key decision Biden must make in the near future is his running mate. Previously, it was reported that Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren were the clear front runners for the position. However. Rep. Val Demings has emerged as a third candidate.
Next up, Biden will turn his attention towards the Hawaiian Democratic Primary on May 22, 2020. He will then shift his focus towards June 2, 2020 when nine primaries will take place.
