Former Vice President Joe Biden swept Democratic presidential primaries in Florida, Illinois, and Arizona on Tuesday, doubling his delegate lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Biden now has 1,132 delegates to Sanders’ 817.

The gap grew from 154 delegates before polls opened to 315, he now has a lead on the path toward the 1,991 delegates needed to win the nomination.

Sanders did not address the results in a livestream on his campaign website, focusing instead on the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden, in a livestream from his home, made an appeal to Sanders leftest voters. “Senator Sanders and his supporters have brought a remarkable passion and tenacity to all of these issues. And together they have shifted the fundamental conversation in this country,” Biden said. “I hear you.”
