Katie Pavlich: Biden’s ‘Clearly Trying to Lower Expectations’ for S.C.
PAVLICH: “He’s clearly trying to lower expectations. But what are you saying about, ‘This is my firewall?' That is just not true. The Biden campaign from the beginning has made the argument that they don’t have to win Iowa or New Hampshire to win the nomination. And it’s true that if he does not win in South Carolina, where is he going to go from here? Momentum matters and Bernie Sanders not only has a lead in terms of delegates on Joe Biden but he has momentum on his side. And let’s not forget, Ed, that early voting has already started in Super Tuesday states, in places like California and Texas 2 million votes have already been cast and people are looking at the current field and going, Bernie Sanders is the guy who seems to be wanting to get it done, who is setting high expectations for his campaign, and Joe Biden seems to be going after very specific demographics of people in a single state rather than looking at the broader picture of all the people he needs to win going into next week.”
