"A candidate who was simply hanging by his little bit of supporters came back," Brazile said during the network's coverage.

Brazile said she was most shocked by his "impressive wins tonight, in states that I didn't even think Joe Biden had a presence in.”

Biden was projected to win in several Super Tuesday states including Texas, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Sen.

Brazile predicted a “big battle for delegates” as the two candidates compete in later races, including the races on March 10 in Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Idaho, North Dakota and Washington state. 

But she said “the biggest prize” will come on St. Patrick’s Day when delegates from Ohio, Illinois, Florida and Arizona are awarded. 

"This race is not over," Brazile said. "It's still fluid, but clearly we now have two top delegate trackers that we need to take a look at."

The former vice president had a rough start to the 2020 primary season, earning fourth and fifth places in Iowa and New Hampshire, respectively, as Sanders soared, winning the popular vote in Iowa and the delegate vote in New Hampshire.

But Biden started his comeback with a win in South Carolina last weekend, his first of the season.
