TONIGHT, WE’LL SEE more primaries taking place as part of the US democratic presidential candidate race.

It comes a week after Super Tuesday, which saw Joe Biden come out triumphant and Michael Bloomberg dropping out of the race. 

The primaries give us a greater sense of who could face Donald Trump in the 2020 election. But what is Super Tuesday exactly, what states were involved, and what could it mean for Trump? That’s what we looked at in our most recent The Explainer podcast, and it’s a good time to listen in today – in time for tonight’s events.

RTÉ Six One News presenter and former Washington Correspondent Caitríona Perry, TheJournal.ie reporter Rónán Duffy and NUI Galway law lecturer and TheJournal.ie columnist Larry Donnelly join presenter Sinéad O’Carroll in studio to discuss what Super Tuesday means, what it involves, and what Biden’s ‘comeback’ tells us about Democratic voters.
