WASHINGTON (AP) — Bernie Sanders has seized victory in Super Tuesday’s biggest prize, California, while a resurgent Joe Biden scored wins in the upper Midwest and African American strongholds in the South.

The two Democrats were battling for delegates as 14 states and one U.S. territory held a series of high-stakes presidential primary elections.

Biden took Arkansas, Alabama, Minnesota, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Virginia, while Sanders won California, Colorado, Utah and Vermont.

The clash between the two peaked on a day that could determine whether the Democrats' 2020 nomination fight will stretch all the way to the party's July convention or be decided much sooner.
