A whopping 228 delegates were up for grabs in the Texas primary. Joe Biden ran away with the most, helping him surge to the top of what is now effectively a two-man race between Biden and Bernie Sanders.

Then, Abby Livingston — Washington Bureau Chief for the Texas Tribune — gives her analysis on how the progressive climate agenda may impact down-ballot races in the general.
