In a stunning victory, President Joe Biden easily swept the Democratic Nevada primary, leaving his fellow candidates in the dust. With 62% of the ballots counted, Biden clinched a whopping 90% of the vote, leaving the other candidates, including the “none of these candidates” option, in the rearview mirror.

Graciously accepting his win, President Biden thanked the voters, claiming that they represent the backbone of our nation. He gushed about union workers and immigrant families, waxing poetic about dignity, freedom, and the American dream.
It’s worth noting that Rep. Dean Phillips, a top-Biden rival, didn’t even bother competing in the Nevada primary, missing the filing deadline like a kid who forgot about their homework until the last minute.
This win marks Biden’s second triumph, showing that he’s gathering steam in the primaries. He’s taking names and kicking political rear ends. However, let’s not forget that South Carolina’s primary turnout was about as exciting as a nap, which doesn’t bode well for Biden in the general election.
Nevada is shaping up to be the ultimate political battleground, and Biden is laying his chips on Hispanic and Latino voters. Though, after Trump’s success in 2016, it’s clear that the Latino voting bloc isn’t a shoe-in for the Democrats, no matter how hard they try.
Meanwhile, Biden has been schmoozing up a storm in Nevada, rubbing elbows with hospitality workers and glad-handing at Vegas hotels. He’s making the rounds, flashing that big ol’ smile and hoping the union workers will give him the nod for another stint in the White House.
Biden’s also been working the union angle, which seems to be his golden ticket to re-election. He’s been courting working-class voters and raking in those union endorsements like they’re going out of style.
In the end, this primary victory is just the beginning of what’s shaping up to be an epic showdown between Biden and Trump. Nevada is the political boxing ring, and these two heavyweights are gearing up for the fight of a lifetime. Let’s get ready to rumble!
