Sanders was unable to pass former Vice President Joe Biden on the delegate count after Tuesday’s contests. Biden won four of the six states, including Michigan’s crucial contest, bringing in at least 177 delegates. Sanders won North Dakota and brought in at least 111 delegates so far.
Biden is reported to have won 856 delegates thus far with Sanders having won 709.
Omar commented on the importance of unity during the upcoming election, tweeting, “Be kind to one another and let’s have each other’s back in Nov!”
During an Instagram live video, Ocasio-Cortez said, “There’s no sugar coating it, tonight’s a tough night. Tonight’s a tough night for the movement overall… Obviously tonight’s a tough night electorally.”
She continued on to congratulate Biden saying, “I congratulate Vice President Biden on the states that he won this evening.”

Sanders appears to be losing momentum on both the delegate count and endorsements as Biden has gained most of the support from the other former presidential hopefuls.
With Biden’s primary victories and growing endorsements, a path to the Democratic nomination is looking more likely. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is still in the race but has not been gaining endorsements or enough delegates to keep up with Biden or Sanders.
