All eyes were on California and Texas, the two states with the most delegates up for grabs. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) came out victorious in California, where 415 delegates were up for the taking. Former Vice President Joe Biden, however, took the Long Star State after a neck and neck race with the self-described "democratic socialist" from Vermont.

Voters wait in line into the night in Houston to cast their vote in the 2020 primary. When one voter was asked why she waited so long, she replied, "I can remember when I did not have the right to vote."— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) March 4, 2020

Also: calling states early made people leave lines early in California and Texas where lines where very long, especially on college campuses and in communities of color. Y'all should be ashamed of yourselves.— Aura Bogado (@aurabogado) March 4, 2020
