Biden wins Indiana Democratic primary

President Biden has won Indiana’s Democratic primary, according to Decision Desk HQ.

The Hoosier State added 79 delegates into Biden’s column, pushing him further past the mark he needed to become the Democrats’ presumptive nominee, according to a tracker from Decision Desk HQ/The Hill.

The incumbent was the only choice on Indiana’s Democratic primary ballot — a setup that insulated him from seeing any “uncommitted” protest votes, as he’s seen in several state primaries so far. Write-ins don’t count unless a candidate filed an intent to become one in advance.

But former President Trump, who has sealed Indiana’s GOP primary across the aisle, has the edge on Biden in recent polling, and the Democrat isn’t expected to flip the red state this fall. Indiana has voted red in every presidential election over the last six decades or so, with the exception of siding with former President Obama back in 2008.

Also on Tuesday’s ballot is a crowded six-way Republican primary to succeed GOP Gov. Eric Holcomb, who is term-limited.

Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) has won his race, leaving the party to rally behind Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) to replace the first-term senator in the upper chamber. In turn, Banks’s House seat is one of several up for grabs this year.
