Today, voters in 10 states will cast their ballot for the presidential primary. Vice President Joe Biden currently has more delegates than Senator Bernie Sanders in the race for the Democratic nomination.

Pennsylvania’s primary isn’t until the end of April. U.S. Senator Bob Casey and much of Pennsylvania’s Democratic House delegation have already endorsed Biden. And many party leaders have said they felt relieved following Biden’s Super Tuesday wins.

But in the Lehigh Valley, it could end up being a tighter race in the spring. Kathy Herrington is with the Lehigh County Democratic Committee. 

“It’s probably going to be Biden. But we have a large large population of people that definitely want Bernie. And it’s you know the younger people that are getting into whatever the establishment wants to do,” says Herrington.

Herrington also says there are some people in the county that say they will not vote in the November election if their candidate isn’t on the ticket.
