President Biden has won the Louisiana Democratic presidential primary, according to a projection from Decision Desk HQ. 

Biden passed the threshold to secure the party’s nomination earlier this month, paving the way for a rematch against former President Trump in November. The incumbent is expected to win all 47 delegates allocated to the Pelican State.

Author Marianne Williamson, who briefly suspended her White House bid but jumped back in late last month, also appeared on the ballot. But the long-shot candidate has not yet brought in any delegates in the Democrat primary race.

In the 2020 election, Trump led Biden in the state 58 percent to 40 percent. A Democrat has not won the state in a general election since 1996, when former President Clinton led former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) 52 percent to 40 percent.

Still, the Pelican State is not expected to play a decisive role in the 2024 general election.
