Joe Biden wins Hawaii presidential primary delayed by virus

HONOLULU (AP) — Joe Biden has won the presidential primary in Hawaii. The results were announced Saturday.

The party-run primary was delayed by more than a month because of the coronavirus. In-person voting was canceled and additional ballots were sent out for an all-mail-in voting system. Biden received 63% of the votes and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders received 37%.

Biden won 16 delegates and Sanders got eight. According to the count by the Associated Press, Biden has a total of 1,566 delegates to the party’s national convention. He needs 1,991 delegates to win the nomination, a threshold he is projected to reach in June.
