Sanders leads in California, the biggest delegate prize of the night, according to NBC News.

Joe Biden surged to a surprise victory in delegate-rich Texas after winning eight other states in a dominant Super Tuesday showing, according to NBC News projections, though the biggest prize of the night, California, remained unclaimed.

There are 228 delegates at stake in Texas, more than in any other state voting Tuesday except for California.
