(NBC News) – Former Vice President Joe Biden has surged to the forefront of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, the projected winner in nine Super Tuesday states, including a surprise win in delegate-rich Texas.
“It’s a good night, and it seems to be getting even better. They don’t call it Super Tuesday for nothing,” Biden told supporters.

Senator Bernie Sanders is leading there.

He is the projected winner in Colorado, Utah and his home state, Vermont.
