SC was a big win, not just for the delegates

but because it demonstrated decisively that Biden is best positioned to win in November because he's the candidate with closest ties to Barack and thus to African-American voters who supported him. Many have challenged that wisdom but last night proved it. And now Joe is going to Move on Up!!







NPR first numbers: Biden 54.6% in SC, Bernie & Styer tied at 18.6%

from their website: https://apps.npr.org/liveblogs/20200229-south-carolina/

UPDATE 1: Now it's as follows:
Joe Biden - 46.3%
Bernie Sanders - 20.3%
Tom Steyer - 12.7%
.......................
UPDATE 2:
Joe Biden - 50.0%
Bernie Sanders - 19.1%
Tom Steyer - 12.3%
.................................

"Why did you vote to give gun makers immunity?" Sanders: "Joe voted for terrible trade deals!"

Audience: YAYYYYYYYY!!

Biden: the only interest we can't go after are gun manufacturers thanks to my buddy here

Culinary Workers Secretary-Treasurer refuses to promise support for Sanders should he win the nom

In this Weekend Edition NPR segment, Nevada Culinary Workers Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Arguello-Kline refuses to promise support for Sanders should he win the nomination (4-minute radio story; no transcript yet):

https://www.npr.org/2020/02/16/806417317/culinary-workers-union-officer-discusses-decision-not-to-endorse-candidate

She won't endorse any candidate in the primary, but says she and another woman of color in the Culinary Workers leadership found the Sanders supporters attacks on them "very concerning."

The NPR host tries three times to get her to rally behind Bernie if he wins, or at least for the winner whoever he is, and Arguello refuses, tersely leaving it at "we will defeat Trump."

p.s. The host confirms this in another story I just heard (she's talking to a political correspondent about Nevada) so I heard right.

Take it away Charleston
