Biden won the South Carolina state primaries

Biden won the South Carolina state primaries

This Saturday (3/2), United States President Joe Biden won the Democratic primary in South Carolina. It was the party's first official event, and according to local media estimates, Biden easily won the controversy.

To reach the end, the president ran against Representative Dean Phillips of Minnesota and Marianne Williamson, author of best-selling self-help books.

In a statement after the decision, Biden highlighted the importance of the state. “In 2020, it was the voters of South Carolina who proved the pundits wrong, breathed new life into our campaign, and put us on the path to winning the presidency.”

“Now, in 2024, the people of South Carolina have spoken again, and I have no doubt that they have led us to win the presidency again and defeat Donald Trump again,” he said.

Despite the victory, Biden is seen as an unpopular candidate in the region and needs to understand how he will connect with the state's black voters. Other concerns include his age — the president is 81 — and how he would handle border security between the U.S. and Mexico.

Historically, South Carolina has not been a Democratic-leaning state. On the other hand, from the Republican Party, the main race is former President Donald Trump, 77 years old.

The US election will be held on November 5.
