Both sitting President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump technically clinched the needed number of delegates to secure their respective nominations on Tuesday.

Biden got more than 1,968 delegates needed to win his party's nomination when votes from Georgia's primary election were counted on Tuesday night. Votes were also counted from Mississippi, Washington state, the Northern Mariana Islands, and Democrats living outside the U.S.

Later, Trump got the 1,215 delegates he needed to win his party's nomination for president as four states, including Georgia, had their contests.

Georgia is important because Trump is facing legal problems there for trying to change the state's election results from 2020. On Tuesday, there were 161 delegates up for grabs in Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Washington state.

The Biden-Trump rematch in the upcoming presidential election marks a historic event, as it is the first presidential rematch in 70 years.

This rare occurrence echoes the days of the 1950s when Harry S. Truman and Thomas E. Dewey found themselves opponents in consecutive elections, highlighting a moment in American politics where the nation witnessed its leaders battle for the presidency not once, but twice.

The significance of this rematch cannot be overstated, as it underscores a deeply polarized political landscape where two figures, each with a distinct vision for America, vie for the opportunity to shape the country's future once more.

This electoral battle comes at a time when the United States faces unprecedented challenges both domestically and internationally, making the stakes higher than ever.
