BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Joe Biden and Donald Trump have won their parties’ respective Louisiana presidential primaries.
The Saturday election was postponed twice because of the coronavirus outbreak and pushed back so many months that it became irrelevant to the selection of the Democratic nominee to challenge Trump in November.
Trump easily won Louisiana’s GOP primary, where he faced four other Republicans on the state’s ballot. Biden also coasted to victory against 13 other Democrats on Louisiana’s ballot.
Voters had extra days of early voting and expanded mail-in balloting options because of the coronavirus pandemic.
