Ahead Super Tuesday Showdown: Clinton Wins in South Carolina Primary


In the race for the first female president in the United states of America, hilary clinton seems to be on top of the race for the white house, having  scored a resounding victory against Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary in South Carolina, seizing momentum ahead of the most important day of the nomination race: next week's "Super Tuesday" showdown.

Four weeks into the White House primaries, the former secretary of state earned her first decisive win of the campaign, after a nail-biter victory in Iowa, a thumping loss to Sanders in New Hampshire, and then a five-point win in Nevada.
South Carolina was the first southern state to vote for a 2016 Democratic nominee, before the race broadens to 11 contests across the country.
"Tomorrow this campaign goes national," Clinton said to a loud roar as she thanked supporters in Columbia, South Carolina, where she emerged with a clearer path to the nomination.
"We are going to compete for every vote in every state. We are not taking anything, and we are not taking anyone, for granted."

US networks called the race for Clinton immediately after polls closed in the Palmetto State, where the majority of Democratic voters are African-American, a voting bloc that she and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, have successfully courted for decades.
