Joe Biden has won the Democrat presidential primary in Louisiana. On Saturday, Biden won with nearly 80% of the votes, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) took around 7%.

The win gave the former vice president 54 more delegate votes for his presumptive formal nomination in August.

Louisiana’s primaries were expected to take place in April, but were postponed twice due to the pandemic. Voters were asked to wear masks and maintain social distancing while at the polls.

“It’s safe to come out and vote. You need to come out and vote. I mean, it’s your right. You need to do it. This country is in a pivotal time, it’s very important to vote.” – Prentice Jones, voter

President Trump also won the Republican primary in a landslide against two other competing hopefuls.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues to make gaffes on the campaign trail. Earlier this week during an interview, he seemingly lost his train of thought and fumbled over his words.

He attempted to make a recovery by claiming he had spoken for too long.

“Critical laws like the PRO Act, there is strength in collective bargaining,” said Biden. “On politics like prevailing…Look, I’m taking too much time, but you know.”

Some have suggested Biden was reading off of a teleprompter. He also referred to the popular phrase “woke” by mistakenly calling it “woked.”
