AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Hillary Clinton has easily won Texas’ Democratic primary, giving her the most delegate-rich prize of Super Tuesday.

Clinton was a heavy favorite in Texas. She locked up endorsements from many of the state’s top Democrats and also carried the state in 2008 over Barack Obama.

Texas isn’t a winner-take-all primary. Bernie Sanders is on track to get a sliver of the 222 delegates at stake but didn’t compete like the Vermont senator had done in Iowa and New Hampshire.

The primary contest was the biggest draw on the Texas ballot. No major statewide offices are up for grabs to drive voters to the polls, and Texas has few competitive congressional or legislative races on the Democratic side.
