A Biden, Sanders Divide In Western Massachusetts On Super Tuesday

The Boston Globe

            In a Super Tuesday stunner, Joe Biden won Massachusetts.

     Among the places that helped deliver the victory to the former vice president were the largest cities in western Massachusetts: Springfield, Chicopee, Pittsfield, and Westfield. 

     Bernie Sanders carried Holyoke.   Elizabeth Warren, in what turned out to be a very grim night in her home state, won Northampton by a single percentage point over Sanders.

     For more on the western Massachusetts vote on Super Tuesday, WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Matt Szafranski, Editor-in-Chief of Western Massachusetts Politics & Insight.
