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 Sept. 24, FiveThirtyEight reported Biden at first place with 127 points, Harris in second at 92 points, U.S. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey at 59 points, Warren at 51 points, and U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at 42 points.

The top five rankings have remained the same compared to Aug. 23, when FiveThirtyEight reported Biden at first place with 113 points, Harris with 89 points, Senator Booker with 58 points, Warren at 44 points, and Senator Klobuchar with 42 points.
