Bernie Sanders congratulated Joe Biden on his winning the South Carolina caucus—his first ever for the Democratic presidential nomination—which has set the stage for tomorrows Super Tuesday.
“Now I am very proud that in this campaign so far we have won the popular vote in Iowa. We have won the New Hampshire primary. We have won the Nevada caucus. But you cannot win them all,” Sanders said, in Norfolk, Virginia at a rally just hours after the voting had closed on Saturday.
“And tonight we did not win in South Carolina. And that will not be the only defeat. There are a lot of states in this country. Nobody wins them all,” Sanders said with a hoarse voice. “I want to congratulate Joe Biden on his victory tonight,” he said, before turning his attention to focus to Super Tuesday.
“And now we enter Super Tuesday in Virginia,” he said to his audience. “And I believe very strongly that the people of this country on Super Tuesday and after are going to support our campaign because we are more than a campaign. We are a movement.”
“We are here tonight because we are determined that Donald Trump will be a one-term president,” he said to his audience in Norfolk.
Together, we can win this primary, defeat Donald Trump, and put power back in the hands of working people. Join us live in Norfolk, VA: https://t.co/e8SSEu67lo

“The American people—no matter what their political views may be—do not want a president in office who is a pathological liar, who is running a corrupt administration, who apparently has never read the Constitution of the United States.”
Sanders also held President Trump responsible for “undermining American democracy” through “his attacks on the media, on the judiciary, [and] on Congress.”
Former Vice President Joe Bidens victory of February 29 breathed life into his campaign after lackluster performances in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown on Super Tuesday.
South Carolina, I cant thank you enough. Tonights big victory has launched us forward, and we need your help to keep the momentum going.
