Joe Biden scored a blowout win in the Florida primary Tuesday, multiple outlets report, the biggest delegate prize of the night.

Fox News reports:

Biden was ahead of Sanders in Florida by a massive margin of 943,927 votes to 350,130 with 82 percent of precincts reporting. The rout was somewhat expected, with the state's sizable Cuban- and Venezuelan-American population largely resistant to Sanders' democratic socialist politics and many voters angered after he defended former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's literacy programs.

Biden won Illinois as well on Tuesday, as Bernie Sanders' shot at the White House gets even slimmer.

According to the Washington Examiner, Biden's victory leaves Sanders "with no realistic path to securing the Democratic presidential nomination."
