Democratic presidential contender and former Vice President Joe Biden is the projected winner of Massachusetts on Super Tuesday.

Far-left candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) came in second, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) taking third in her home state.

Massachusetts holds the fourth-most delegates of all Super Tuesday states, at 91; Biden, Sanders, and Warren, who all brought in over 15%, will split the delegates.

“My name is Elizabeth Warren and I’m the woman who’s going to beat Donald Trump,” Warren told supporters before losing Massachusetts, which The Hill said could be the “death knell” of her campaign.

“Exit polls showed that Warren did poorly among male voters, winning just 17% from them. She did better among women – earning 34% of female votes – but that was still less than both Biden and Sanders got from women voters,” U.S. News reported, noting that the senator “lost in virtually every demographic group, according to the exit polls. A former Harvard Law School professor, Warren did best among people with advanced degrees.”

Warren was predicated to take her home state, though polling Monday indicted that she was at risk of losing:

“Some 10,000 people turned out for a Sanders rally in Boston on Saturday, and a Suffolk University–WBZ–Boston Globe poll released Sunday showed Warren and Sanders in a statistical tie,” The Daily Wire noted Tuesday morning. “That has prompted Warren to spend time in the state to make sure she doesn’t lose there, taking her away from other important states.”
