The AP has called Wisconsin’s presidential primaries for Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
Biden topped Bernie Sanders, who was harshly critical of the decision to allow voters to head to the polls in the leadup to election day. Sanders conceded the Dem presidential nomination to Biden one day after the April 7 election but said he would remain on the ballot to continue to gather delegates ahead of the party’s Milwaukee convention.
I am grateful to have the support of so many Wisconsinites and proud of the courage and commitment folks showed during last week’s primary — but it should never have come to that.

Sanders today endorsed Biden.
Meanwhile, President Trump ran unopposed after the Republican Party of Wisconsin decided against adding any other Republicans to the ballot.
In 2016, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz won the state’s GOP primary by more than 13 points over Trump while Sanders topped Hillary Clinton by roughly the same margin.
