Your Daily Roundup for March 11th
What are your thoughts on the Super Tuesday II results?
Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.

Voters in six states had their opportunity to vote for their preference for the Democratic nominee, and so far former Vice President Joe Biden took four of those states while Senator Bernie Sanders nabbed one. Only Washington is outstanding and too close to call.
In Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi, Biden swept every single county in the three states. He won Idaho by 6 points, and Sanders carried the North Dakota caucuses by a margin of 53.3% to 39.8%.
