US President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have won the Michigan primaries, further solidifying the all-but-certain rematch between the two men.

Biden defeated Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, his one significant opponent left in the Democratic primary. Democrats are also closely watching the results of the “uncommitted” vote, which grassroots organizers have been pushing in Michigan as a way to register objections over Biden’s handling of the war in Gaza.
