2020 election: Joe Biden elected 46th President, defeated Donald Trump
But the former Delaware Senator became the front runner on Super Tuesday in March. These primaries earned him a total of 458 delegates Pete Buttigieg, Klobuchar and businessman Michael Bloomberg get out of the race. They would continue to support their colleague while the Democratic Party rallied behind Biden.
Not long after Sanders and Warren dropped out of the race, Biden became the suspected Democratic presidential candidate.
In the months that followed, Biden was cautious about the coronavirus pandemic and switched to hosting virtual events. And his limited efforts were only aided by the announcement of his election as vice president.
On Tuesday, August 11, the former vice president finally announced that he had asked the California senator to be his deputy. In a partially written statement, he said, "Her track record – she fights tooth and nail for what is right – is why I choose her. There is no door that Kamala will not knock on, no stone that they leave intact if it means making life better – for people. "
