Chuck Todd: ‘Biden’s South Carolina Firewall Held and Then Some’ But the ‘Confetti Could Stop for Him on Super Tuesday’

‘With almost all the votes counted, Joe Biden won every single county in the state, crushing Bernie Sanders by a 2-1 margin’

RUSH EXCERPT:

TODD: “Good Sunday morning from our election headquarters right here at Rockefeller center in new York City. We have so much to talk about. Yesterday South Carolina’s primary, our look ahead to super Tuesday and the growing fears over the coronavirus which has now claimed its first victim in the United States. So let’s get right to it. We’ll start with presidential politics. While he’s not yet the comeback kid, Joe Biden got the win he so desperately needed yesterday. Biden’s South Carolina firewall held and then some. With almost all the votes counted, Joe Biden won every single county in the state, crushing Bernie Sanders by a 2-1 margin with everyone else trailing badly. Biden’s big win helped him close the delegate gap considerably with Sanders. With six South Carolina delegates still to be allocated, it’s very close.”
