High stakes in South Carolina primary for Biden, Sanders

As former Vice President Joe Biden looked to Saturday’s Democratic primary for a turnaround in his bid for the 2020 presidential nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders finds himself facing intensive new pushback there from his old self-definition as a “democratic socialist.”

Tuesday night’s televised debate in Charleston disintegrated into a political food fight in which no one escaped unscathed. However, Biden still clung to hope by virtue of a strong performance and the endorsement the next morning by the state’s most prominent Democrat, Rep. James Clyburn, leader of the large African-American community there.

Opponents assailed Sanders for years-old praise of aspects of foreign socialist states such as Cuba, questioning whether he could beat Donald Trump in November, bearing such political baggage.

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, too, was again a target, if somewhat less so than in his debate debut in Nevada the previous week. He seemed more relaxed while still on the defensive against allegations of trying to buy the nomination with $400 million in television ads.

1. Biden's desperately hoping he can stay in the game when donors are leaving him

 

As shown in the bigger picture on super Tuesday, where his showing will be dismal at the best. SC's results will not mean as much as he's counting on, or pretending it will be. His campaign and funding issues will only get worse . Numerous people I know are switching away from him , and his mistakes he makes .

2. Good to see the title, high stakes in SC, for Biden AND Sanders.

 

Despite myopic 'media momentum', where IA was arguably Mayor Pete's big breakthrough and BS marginal, NH was less than expected for BS, Nevada was a caucus - the title recognizes that SC is big for both.

Big day, with big impact on Super Tuesday - where it's about, hypes aside, who best beats trump.
