BELLAIRE — As they did in 2016, Antrim County's registered voters opted for incumbent Donald Trump as their Republican presidential candidate of choice in Tuesday's presidential primary election, but, in a move similar to the rest of the state, preferred former vice-president Joe Biden over perennial presidential candidate Bernie Sanders as the nation's Democratic nominee in the upcoming November general election.

With all 15 Antrim County township precincts reporting as of midnight on Tuesday, Trump garnered 2,314 votes out of a total of 2,438 Republican votes cast, while Biden enjoyed a decided victory over Sanders and Hawaii senator Tulsi Gabbard, taking 1,871 of the 3,474 Democratic votes cast against Sanders’ tally of 1,219 votes and Gabbard's 15 votes.

Statewide, Biden received a total of 838,555 votes over Sanders’ 576,754 votes, which earned the Delaware resident 53 of Michigan's 125 delegates to the Democratic National Convention in July.

Addressing supporters Tuesday night, Biden said voters had put him “a step closer to restoring decency, dignity and honor to the White House” and moved to unify the party with an appeal to supporters of Bernie Sanders.
