10:21 pm
democratic presidential primary race is underway it's super tuesday and millions of voters across 14 states and one u.s. territory a cost of about for the candidate they want to take on donald trump in november front runner embodies sanders is hoping to extend his lead but his rival joe biden has had a boost after 2 candidates dropped out and threw their weight behind him there are just 5 candidates left in the race these are the 14 states voting for a democrat nominee along with american samoa 13 of voting for a republican nominee or the donald trump is already so not that race all in 1300 democratic delegates are up for grabs they'll be assigned to candidates and sent to the party convention later in the year when the winner will be crowned just under 2000 delegates needed to win 2 of the states are among the biggest prizes available california selects $415.00 delegates the most of any state texas has the thought
10:22 pm
3rd largest total $228.00 well this will give much more clarity over which of the 5 contenders left is most likely to end up on november's ballot paper and indicate who might be next to drop out john hendren is in charlotte in north carolina where democrats accosting their ballots. what happened is over the past 48 hours you had pete booted judge panel out of the race and amy closed which are both of them have backed joe biden there was a poll that came out just a day ago a day before the polls open that said lead the leading candidate was bernie sanders that michael bloomberg was 2nd showing that he has made some impact in that joe biden was 3rd there are other polls that have differed but the bottom line is that it doesn't matter what any of those polls say anymore because nobody knows where those voters for people to judge and amy close which are will go the race has been narrowed down to 5 candidates with the exception of tolls the gabbert who hasn't made a real impact here she's
10:23 pm
a bit younger the rest of them are all white and over 70 years old so there are some similarities in this race and it's a test of a number of things the test of the bloomberg candidacy he has not been on the ballot in any of the previous 4 states so this will be the 1st chance for voters to get to see whether he will make an impact on this race right now what the biden campaign is hoping to do is make this a race between him the moderate and bernie sanders the liberal but bloomberg is also a moderate and he may have an impact on that race and there's another problem here for many people and that is that 800000 people just here in the state of north carolina have voted early so that means they could have voted for people like people to judge and amy close this is the ballot people did it was made weeks ago and it has 15 names on them presumably some people have already voted in advance for these people and presumably some people may vote for them still to come is a democratic strategist and i for my regional press secretary for the party's national committee joins us now from washington d.c.
10:24 pm
thanks very much for being with us just to go back to. dropping out where do you think those votes will go. to putting the voters will do that with. yeah thank you again for having me 1st i would say that there was some polling done in late january early february by quinnipiac that showed that the 2nd choice for mayor. voters as well as for senator amy klobuchar are voters was joe biden so you know it's more likely than not that they are going to gravitate towards either biden or bloomberg one of the more moderate candidates you know both mayor pete and cynical bashar really tried to lay out a platform that was focused on the moderate voters and you know bernie sanders is not considered a moderate in this race and so i would imagine that a lot of their voters will go to either former vice president biden or mayor
10:25 pm
bloomberg and how critical is this particular point in the nomination period for someone like what we're going to chances does he have at this stage. yeah i mean so you know mayor bloomberg actually put a lot on the line for super tuesday at the end of today by tomorrow morning 40 percent of the. ballots that will be cast for the democratic primary will have occurred and so he's hoping to really make some in ways you know whether it's north carolina arkansas was the 1st place that he went and he actually went there in person to deliver his. nomination form so it's going to be really really important however i do think that there's a lot of factors that are in play here one is the early votes so there are a lot of people who cast their votes in california and texas north carolina and other places for him in this that are no longer in the race to what you've seen
10:26 pm
over the last 48 hours 72 hours has been this coalescing around vice president biden by the moderate wing of the democratic party and so where do those voters go and i think that's going to be really really critical and i think what we'll see tonight will be a glimpse of that for those that are making voting decisions over the course of the last day or 2 you mention the moderate wing there is it fair to say that there's a kind of democratic party establishment move to china sound as it will cost or is that is that the wrong way to interpret things that the moment. i don't know if i would interpret it that way what i would say is that you know as part of the primary process as we saw in 2016 and in previous elections you know there are the democratic party's a diverse party we are a party of liberals we're a party of conservatives where party of gender dynamics and racial dynamics and so you know what you're seeing is like i said the moderate ring really coalesced around either vice president biden that's where looks we're seeing the endorsements
10:27 pm
everyone from senator tim kaine in virginia which is going to be a critical state today to people like former majority leader harry reid and others and so there is this divide in the democratic party i think it's it's fair to say that we may not have a clear nominee by the time we get to convention but the party does have rules in place to help ensure that you know the will of the voters is really heard and heeded to by delegates to thank you very much indeed for taking the time to talk to us thank you. how nice to 22 people have been killed after a series of tornadoes ripped through nashville and other parts of tennessee the u.s. state is among those participating in super tuesday and rescues searching for possible survivors buried under the rubble officials say polling sites will remain open sean bonus as well. in airy cool to take shelter for tennessee residents the siren warns of
