Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will win the North Dakota Democratic presidential caucus, NBC News projects.
North Dakota has 14 delegates at stake, the smallest prize offered on the March 10 Democratic contests.
Sanders’ victory comes after former Vice President Joe Biden, his chief Democratic rival in the 2020 election, earned a series of early wins Tuesday.
In the 2016 primary, the Vermont senator also won the state, sweeping Democratic rival Hillary Clinton with 64% of the vote to her 26%, according to NBC News.
Michigan, Idaho, Washington, Mississippi and Missouri were also among the states that voted Tuesday. Of those states, Michigan, which Biden won, boasts the largest pledged delegate count, with 125 on the line.
Biden also won Missouri, Mississippi and Idaho. Washington remains too close to call.
The latest round of primaries came a week after Super Tuesday, during which Biden won surprise victories and eked out a pledged delegate lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii remains in the race, but the contest for the Democratic nomination has fallen largely between Biden and Sanders.
In the last two weeks, Biden has received a slew of highly coveted endorsements from his former Democratic rivals who have since dropped their 2020 bids. Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, along with with Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California, endorsed him, citing him as the candidate best positioned to beat Trump in November.
