Who won Alabama presidential primary? Election results

Published 8:23 pm Tuesday, March 3, 2020

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden easily won their party’s presidential primaries in Alabama in Super Tuesday voting.

Trump, who is very popular among Republicans in the deeply conservative state, had an insurmountable lead over the only other candidate on the GOP primary ballot, former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld.

Biden carried the state after a weekend appearance for an event commemorating the 55th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” in Selma.

Fourteen Democrats were on the state’s ballot, but the only candidates still in the race were Biden, former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

Black voters dominate the state’s Democratic electorate, and Biden and Bloomberg split the endorsements of the state’s largest black political coalitions. The Alabama New South Coalition backed Biden and the Alabama Democratic Conference supported Bloomberg.
