Biden Now the Presumptive Democratic Nominee

President Joe Biden (D) has won a majority of available delegates for the Democratic presidential nomination and is now the presumptive Democratic nominee. With a win in today’s Democratic primary in Georgia, and barring any unusual developments, Biden is now all-but certain to win the nomination. He is expected to be formally nominated at the Democratic National Convention in August.

Biden was a long-serving member of the United States Senate, a two-term vice president under President Barack Obama (D), and is now nearing the end of his first term as president. He defeated former President Donald Trump (R) in 2020, and is likely to face him again in November.

Trump (R) has been the presumptive Republican nominee since his last opponent, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R), dropped out of the race last week. Trump has not yet attained the necessary 1,215 delegates, but is likely to do so soon. The Republican National Convention, where Trump is likely to be formally nominated, will be held in July.
