As the state holding the second largest number of potential delegates available to Democratic presidential candidates on Super Tuesday, a lot of eyes are on Texas. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has been leading in several recent polls, but former Vice President Joe Biden is seeing a surge in support after his big win in South Carolina on Saturday.
Texas will be critically important to Biden, as Sanders is expected to win big in California. A number of endorsements are moving his way, including from Austin Mayor Steve Adler, who previously endorsed former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Buttigieg dropped out of the race Sunday and endorsed Biden. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar also suspended her campaign and endorsed Biden. She appeared at a rally for the former vice president in Dallas on Monday night, joined by another former candidate, Texan Beto O'Rourke.
Adler said he’s confident about Biden’s chance, despite the fact that more than 1 million Texans have already voted.
“There will be people that will be engaged in voting in this primary that have never voted in a primary election before, and I don't think we know what’s going to happen,” he told MSNBC on Monday.
Both former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren are also competing hard in Texas. Both held rallies in the state over the weekend.
Texas has 228 delegates. A candidate needs to receive 15% of the vote statewide or in state Senate districts to be awarded delegates.
