‘I Can’t Thank You Enough’: Biden Wins Key Primary In South Carolina

Former Vice President Joe Biden has won his first state as a presidential candidate last night when he was declared the winner in the South Carolina primary.

And it was not even close.

Biden won a whopping 48 percent of the vote. Bernie Sanders got second place at 20 percent and Tom Steyer took third with 11 percent.

The Associated Press reports:

Biden’s win came at a perilous moment in his 2020 bid as he needed an emphatic rebound after underwhelming performances this month in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada. The race now pivots to the 14 states from Maine to California that vote on Tuesday in what effect will be a national primary.

“We are very much alive,” Biden declared at an exuberant post-election rally. “For all of you who have been knocked down, counted out, left behind — this is your campaign.”

Biden took to Twitter shortly after the win to celebrate and thank his supporters.

“Thank you, South Carolina! To all those who have been knocked down, counted out, and left behind — this is your campaign. Together, we will win this nomination and beat Donald Trump,” Biden said in a tweet.

“South Carolina, I can’t thank you enough. Tonight’s big victory has launched us forward, and we need your help to keep the momentum going,” he added in another tweet with a video of him and his wife.

President Trump dismissed Biden ahead of his win on Saturday, telling a crowd at the National Harbor that he would not be capable of leading the government. Instead, Trump commented that Biden would be in a retirement home and have other people run the government for him.

Biden addressed Trump’s comment during an interview on Sunday morning with host Chris Wallace:

Trump also commented on Biden’s win in a tweet, saying: “Sleepy Joe Biden’s victory in the South Carolina Democrat Primary should be the end of Mini Mike Bloomberg’s Joke of a campaign. After the worst debate performance in the history of presidential debates, Mini Mike now has Biden split up his very few voters, taking many away!”
