Huge Win for Clinton in S. Carolina Primary

Hillary Clinton has secured a big win over Bernie Sanders in the South Carolina primary, the latest battleground in the race to be Democratic presidential nominee.
Victory for Clinton was widely expected but it gives her momentum ahead of the “Super Tuesday” primaries in 11 states this week.
“Tomorrow this campaign goes national,” she told cheering supporters, BBC reported.
Sanders has congratulated her but said the campaign was just beginning. With almost all the votes counted, Clinton leads Sanders by an almost 50-point margin.
Eight out of 10 black voters backed Clinton, exit polls suggested, a key section of the Democratic electorate.
It is Clinton’s third victory in four contests, after wins in Iowa and Nevada. She lost to Sanders in New Hampshire.
Eight years ago, she lost the South Carolina primary overwhelmingly to then senator Barack Obama.
It was a different story this time. Soon after polls closed, she told supporters: “You sent a message—in America when we stand together, there is no barrier too big to break.”
On the Republican side, billionaire Donald Trump leads a field that has dwindled to five from 12 a month ago. He won the Nevada caucus on Wednesday by a wide margin; correspondents say he is beginning to look unstoppable.
In her victory speech, Clinton aimed a dig at the man tipped to be the Republican presidential candidate.
“Despite what you hear, we don’t need to make America great again. America has never stopped being great,” she said, referencing Trump’s campaign slogan. Sanders, a veteran senator from Vermont, said he was now focusing on the Super Tuesday vote.
“In politics, on a given night, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Tonight we lost,” he told reporters in Minnesota, one of the states taking part.
