DENVER (KDVR) — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is projected to win the Democratic primary in Colorado, the Associated Press said shortly after polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday night.
As of 10:30 p.m., Sanders had received about 36% of votes.
Former Vice President Joe Biden had also received about 23% of votes.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had received about 22% of votes.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren had received about 17% of votes.
Sanders faced fewer opponents than he did just one week ago; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and businessman Tom Steyer recently dropped out.
Buttigieg and Klobuchar endorsed Biden.
Colorado is one of 14 states holding primaries on Tuesday. Colorado previously held caucuses instead of a primary. During the 2016 caucuses, Sanders defeated Secretary Hillary Clinton.
The Centennial State will award 67 delegates based on primary results. A candidate needs at least 1,991 to secure the Democratic nomination for president.
