Arizona, which offers 67 pledged delegates, is one of three states — including Florida and Illinois — that held primary elections on Tuesday as scheduled. Ohio postponed its election at the last minute via an order signed by Health Director Dr. Amy Acton.
Several polls indicated a Biden victory in the Grand Canyon State. The win is significant for the former vice president, who has retaken his status as the Democrat frontrunner in recent weeks.
The final number of delegates allocated to both Biden and Sanders remains unknown as results continue to come in.
