Political website FiveThirtyEight is keeping track of the number of endorsements that each of the Democratic primary candidates are receiving.

FiveThirtyEight used a points system scaled 10 to 1, with 10 points awarded for endorsements from former presidents or vice presidents as well as current national party leaders, 8 points for governors, 6 for U.S. senators, and lower scores for less notable figures.

In scores updated on July 3, FiveThirtyEight reported Biden at first place with 102 points. Behind him was Harris with 78 points, a considerable increase compared to May 20, when she had 55 points.

Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, who once led in endorsement points, came in third with 57 points. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota was fourth with 42 points and Warren was fifth with 25 points.
