Former Vice President Joe Biden saw even more decisive wins Tuesday night, over Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT). With some states still yet to be called, Biden leads Sen. Sanders 775 to 633 in total delegates thus far. 

With the nomination all but locked up for former Vice President Biden, the frontrunner received the support of yet another former presidential contender. 

Andrew Yang draws a unique group of supporters, and undoubtedly the most relatable candidate. VP Biden is in need of young voters, especially those who vehemently support the “revolution” ideology embraced by Sen. Sanders. Yang endorsed Sen. Sanders’ presidential bid in 2016, and still says that Sen. Sanders inspired Yang’s run for the White House:

"I say this having supported Bernie Sanders in 2016. Bernie was an inspiration for me, he inspired my run. But the math says Joe is our prohibitive nominee. We need to bring the party together," Yang said on CNN.

After Tuesday night, it appears that the Democratic establishment will get their way, once again. Even with no real path to the nomination, Sen. Sanders and Vice President Biden are still scheduled to debate, one-on-one, on Sunday night.

With Yang's endorsement of VP Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the last major presidential candidate, who has exited the race, to not make an endorsement thus far.
