( - "It's still early, but things are looking awful, awful good," former Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd of supporters in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

Biden, flanked by his wife and sister -- whom he mixed up at one point -- won primaries in nine mostly southern states, including delegate-rich Texas. Sen. Bernie Sanders won four mostly western states, including the biggest prize, California. (Maine is currently in Biden's column, but it is still too close to call.)

Late-comer and big spender Michael Bloomberg won the primary in American Samoa, and that’s all his wealth has produced for him so far.

Elizabeth Warren lost even her home state of Massachusetts, which Biden won.

Biden now has a total of 397 delegates; Sanders has a total of 356. It takes a total of 1,991 pledged delegates to win the nomination.

Biden roared back on Tuesday in more ways than one: He literally roared on stage in Los Angeles, as he addressed a crowd of supporters:

"So I'm here to report -- we are very much alive!" Biden promised to "send Donald Trump packing."

"For those who have been knocked down, counted out, left behind -- this is your campaign. Just a few days ago, the press, the pundits had declared the campaign dead. And then came South Carolina, and they had something to say about it.

"And we were told well, when you got to Super Tuesday, it would be over. Well, it may be over for the other guy!"
