Hillary Clinton won the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary on Saturday, defeating Sen. Bernie Sanders by a wide margin, thanks to overwhelming support from African-American voters. With her victory in South Carolina, Clinton has shown an ability to build a racially diverse coalition, putting her in position to effectively wrap up the nomination in the coming weeks. But can Bernie come back?
Today, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders met in New Hampshire to campaign together. It was there that Senator Sanders finally endorsed Hillary.
A massive crowd cheered for the two of them as they walked onto the stage together, and that same crowd cheered every time Bernie spoke kindly of Hillary. I’ve been with her since before she announced she was running for president, and as a long-time Hillary supporter, I couldn’t be happier to know that Bernie Sanders has finally come around.
Throughout this past year, Hillary’s message of love and kindness and of the necessity of uniting around a common goal to break down walls and become stronger together has resonated with over 15,000,000 people. Hillary has proved what her friends, family, and colleagues already know about her: That she has what it takes to compile a diverse coalition and win a presidential election.
This upcoming general election will be one for the history books. An election that pits a blatantly hateful, dangerously unpredictable, very rich scam artist against the first female nominee of a major political party—who also happens to be the most qualified presidential candidate in American history. As both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s campaigns begin to pivot into a general election way of thinking, political pundits are starting to realize how perfect this election is for Hillary. This election was made for her.
Though Democrats will win the White House once more, this election victory also relies heavily on the prospect of winning both the House and the Senate. If you have any spare change lying around the house, or a couple extra dollars in your bank account, I urge you to donate not only to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, but to the campaigns of Democrats in states where a Democratic victory are possible. Those states include Ohio, Missouri, and Iowa—among a few others.
Now that Bernie Sanders has come around, I hope many of my followers who were previously not fans of Hillary Clinton will come around as well. If any of you are willing to do so, and would like to brush up on her policies and her campaign, feel free to send me a message here on Tumblr, and I will happily help you out.
Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Vice President Biden, President Obama, Bernie Sanders, and Democrats in the House and the Senate all agree: At the end of the day, we are stronger together. Let’s unite to defeat Donald Trump and the Republicans, win the White House once more, and take back Congress.
Days after handily defeating Bernie Sanders in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton once again triumphed with black voters. In the 11 states and one American territory where Democratic voters cast ballots in Super Tuesday’s primary, Clinton won overwhelming support from black voters.
Women also made a huge difference. The candidate won women by a 15-point margin in Massachusetts; about a 2:1 ratio in Georgia, Virginia and Texas; and secured the votes of two-thirds or more women in Alabama, Tennessee and Arkansas. Clinton’s campaign is a historic accomplishment in and of itself.
