In a stunning rebuke of her candidacy by the voters, Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren lost the presidential primary election in her home state of Massachusetts.
The state was called for front-runner Joe Biden on Super Tuesday.
Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) took second place at the time the race was called.
The embarrassing showing in her home state will only bolster calls for the senator to drop out of the Democratic primary contest. Going into the primary elections on Tuesday, the competition was shaking out to be a contest between the former vice president and Sanders.
President Donald Trump sent out a mocking tweet after the news that Warren had lost her home state.
"Elizabeth 'Pocahontas' Warren, other than Mini Mike, was the loser of the night. She didn't even come close to winning her home state of Massachusetts," he tweeted.

"Well, now she can just sit back with her husband and have a nice cold beer!" he added, referring to an Instagram video Warren posted of herself enjoying a beer.
Republican strategist Karl Rove said on Fox News that this should spell certain doom for Warren's campaign.
"Nobody has ever been nominated for president who did not have sufficient support in their state," said Rove.
"And for her to come out of this, there is no way to recover from this," he added.
"The voters are practical," Rove concluded, "and if the people who know you best don't like ya, even if there are explanations for that, it's gonna be hard to say, well, my people in my own state that I represent rejected me, but you oughta adopt me and support me."
