A recap of Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday proved to be a critical turning point in the race for the Democratic presidential nominee. Last night, former Vice President Joe Biden had big wins across the South and in Texas, while U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont took California and Colorado. 

This morning, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg officially ended his campaign and endorsed Biden for the nomination. Bloomberg held a rally in West Palm Beach last night.

“[Bloomberg] did his best to not acknowledge the circumstances of his campaign,” says Miami Herald’s David Smiley who was at the Bloomberg event. Smiley joined Sundial to talk about how Super Tuesday will influence the Florida primary.
