Charlotte Talks: The 2020 Landscape, Post-Super Tuesday

Chris Miller / WFAE

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

Super Tuesday was the most important day of the Democratic primary calendar. What will the results mean for the rest of the campaign?

Note: this show aired before Michael Bloomberg's withdrawal from the Democratic race

North Carolina had the third-most delegates up for grabs in Tuesday's voting. Nationally, more than a third of the delegates needed for the nomination were decided.

The primary was the first since the exits of Tom Steyer, Pete Buttiegieg and Amy Klobuchar, and marked the first voting with Michael Bloomberg in the mix.

In down-ballot races, Tuesday's primary teed up a highly competitive U.S. Senate race in North Carolina, as well as control of the governor's mansion and legislature.
