Joe Biden secured a key victory in the Democratic presidential nomination race by winning the vital state of Michigan and delivering a major blow to his rival, the Vermont senator Bernie Sanders.

The former vice-president also notched wins in the primaries in Mississippi, Missouri and Idaho. North Dakota went to Sanders, and Washington is still to declare. Speaking from Philadelphia, Biden sounded confident about  election results and struck a tone that hinted his race against Donald Trump might be beginning. “Just over a week ago, many of the pundits declared that this candidacy was dead. Now we’re very much alive,” Biden said. “Tonight, we are a step closer to restoring decency, dignity, and honor to the White House, that’s our ultimate goal,” Biden added, “At this moment when there’s so much fear in the country, when there’s so much fear across the world, we need American leadership. We need presidential leadership that’s honest, trusted, truthful, and steady.”
