INTRO: Voting is underway in the United States on Super Tuesday, the most significant day in the race to select a Democratic candidate to take on Donald Trump in November’s presidential election. Polls are taking place in 14 states, the results of which should give greater clarity as to who will win the Democratic nomination. The frontrunner remains the Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders, but as our North America correspondent Nick Bryant reports, the former vice president, Joe Biden, has been given a boost by endorsements from former rivals.
POLITICIAN: It’s time to get Joe Biden, the next president of the United States of America, Joe Biden.
REPORTER: Super Tuesday is when the primary season goes nationwide, with contests from Maine to California, from Texas to Tennessee. The aim is for the candidates to amass delegates to back them. And a third of them are up for grabs today.
A lopsided victory in South Carolina over the weekend for Joe Biden has not just revived his campaign, but reset the race. His moderate rivals, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, have suspended their campaigns and endorsed his candidacy, largely in an attempt to stop Bernie Sanders from winning the presidential nomination.
