The South Carolina primary is never officially underway until a candidate with momentum gets called a racist or a bad Christian. While Hillary may not have explicitly called Bernie Sanders the former, her partisans are busy implying it.
As recently as a month ago, it was assumed that Mrs. Bill had the black vote in South Carolina sewn up. It’s still likely to save her there, but she’s giving her supporters more than enough reason to doubt everything lately. It also seems as if Bernie may actually want to win now.
This new ad with an endorsement from Erica Garner may very well do as much to sway younger African-American voters in South Carolina as Hillary’s Congressional Black Caucus endorsement will with the older demographic. Love him or hate him, it’s hard to deny that he usually comes off as more sincere than Her Imperial Madameship.
