South Carolina Democratic primary polls results: Bernie Sanders concedes, Clinton wins before Super Tuesday 2016
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is headed to a huge win in South Carolina Democratic Primary. Despite questions being raised about some shift in black voters in Bernie Sandersâ€™ favorite, Hillary Clinton seems to have got the complete backing of the African American voters.
As results started pouring in from the Southern States, Bernie Sanders conceded defeat and his campaign released a statement praising her win. Reports suggest that he also called on her to congratulate.
After her impressive win in the state a beaming Hillary Clinton campaign wrote in an email, â€œWe just won the South Carolina primary!! I am so grateful to you. Some may have doubted us, but we never doubted each other. After todayâ€™s victory, I know weâ€™re ready to fight even harder these final three days before SuperTuesday. With more than a dozen contests and more than 800 delegates at stake, this will be our toughest test yet. If youâ€™re with me, chip in $1 right now, and letâ€™s go win this nomination. This is your campaignâ€.
If that was not enough, her campaign further said, “And I know youâ€™re getting involved to do more than just help yourself or your family. More than 800,000 of you are giving your time and chipping in what you can because you believe that every child in this country should have a great education and every family should feel at home in our country — no matter their race or religion. Meanwhile, any of the Republican candidates — especially their frontrunner — would write discrimination into our laws, roll back womenâ€™s rights, and return us to the tax cuts for the rich that left the middle class in the cold and brought our country to the brink of another Great Depression. Iâ€™m not going to let them drag us backward — and I know you wonâ€™t, either. Weâ€™re going to break down every barrier that holds you back, and weâ€™re going to build ladders of opportunity in their place, so every American can go as far as your hard work can take you.”
