Americans voted for their candidates on Super Tuesday and millions of ballots were collected by both primaries.

With the results of Super Tuesday, America will face a rematch between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Super Tuesday is the combination of both the Democratic Primary and the Republican Primary. These primaries are elections hosted by each candidate’s political party; they determine the candidates for the 2024 presidential election.

The Democratic primaries expected Biden to win all of the primaries. Yet Jason Palmer was the only other candidate to win a Democratic Primary that night. With his campaigning in the region, Palmer won the American Samoa primary. Nevertheless, Biden won the rest of the Democratic primaries. Instead of holding an event or a speech, Biden issued a post the night of the primaries.

“Today, millions of voters across the country made their voices heard – showing that they are ready to fight back against Donald Trump’s extreme plan to take us backward,” Biden posted via X, formerly Twitter. “Every generation of Americans will face a moment when it has to defend democracy. This is our fight.”

The Republican Primary was the most anticipated event of the night. Democrats and Republicans were eager to watch the race between candidate Nikki Haley and Donald Trump. They were the only Republican candidates still running for the presidency. Out of both candidates, Trump was the only candidate to hold a televised speech that day.

“November 5th is going to go down as the single most important day in the history of our country,” Trump said in his speech. “It’s been an incredible period of time. Our country’s history has been sad in so many ways, but I think it’s going to be inspiring.”

Throughout the night, many predicted Trump would dominate all the state primaries. Surprisingly, Haley won the Vermont Republican Primary. Her success in Vermont was the highlight to many that night. Haley made more headlines the next day as she suspended her presidential campaign.

“I’m filled with gratitude for the outpouring of support we’ve received from all across our great country. But the time has now come to suspend my campaign,” Haley stated in her concession speech. “I said I wanted Americans to have their voices heard. I have done that. I have no regrets.”

There were five competing candidates in 2020, but four candidates this year.  The primaries saw the concession of Haley and affirmed the presidential candidates for 2024. This year, the November election will again have Biden and Trump campaign against one another to secure the US presidency.
