I’ll admit, while I did assume Joe Biden would/should win in South Carolina, I never imagined he’d sweep the field like this. No matter the surrounding circumstances, no matter what happens next — Biden earned this one, and after thirty years and three valiant attempts, he deserves his victory lap today.
Next on the agenda (and there will be pressure for it to happen before Tuesday) is announcing his vice-presidential pick… which just became considerably more complicated, of course, because so many people who’d written him off will be making a whole different set of calculations now.
Republicans cancelled their South Carolina primary so Trump couldn’t lose, but thanks to Biden’s massive win — Trump has lost anyway.

Joe Biden just won the first Democratic nominating contest of his lfe. I still find that hard to believe.

Kudos to Rep. Clyburn, also:
Hard to believe we may have a president who has close friends he can take honest advice from. pic.twitter.com/UF2F6ACFwl

Holy shit, the MSNBC exit poll reports that 47% of SC voters said that the Clyburn endorsement was "important" to them in making their decision on whom to vote for.

NEW: Joe Biden bundlers are seeing surge of pledges from new big money donors after his win in South Carolina. Many of these new donors are coming from the camps of Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. Big financial boost for Biden going into Super Tuesday. https://t.co/Np8JVgvqyv

.@mikememoli reports on MSNBC that there was unusually high turnout in white moderate Republican precincts around Charleston. Suburban voters. (Dems picked up the SC-01 House seat on the heels of these indy voters.)
One of the key swing votes in the 2020 general election.

York County is Charlotte suburbs, Horry County is Myrtle Beach with a lot of in-migration. Rural counties vary considerably in their demographics. Winning every county in SC, like Biden did tonight, is quite a feat. 2/2

Rainbow sprinkles on Biden’s well-deserved sundae…
If you’re about to tweet some awful slightly racist take about the ignorance of black voters bc they’re voting for someone other than Bernie, keep it in your drafts. Thank you! Happy Saturday!

If they call them low-info voters, remind them that 8% of black people voted for Trump while 60% of whites did the same.

My fellow black brothers and sisters. When it’s your turn to vote….leave no doubt. These bigots don’t just deserve to lose they need to be humiliated. https://t.co/clDCY7KCKy

These same Bernie supporters were ready to declare him the nominee last Saturday. https://t.co/DkyI21yJqc
