SC Official Switches Presidential Endorsement from Biden to Sanders

HeadlineJan 24, 2020

In South Carolina, a prominent African-American lawmaker has switched her endorsement in the 2020 presidential primary from Joe Biden to Senator Bernie Sanders. Richland County Councilmember Dalhi Myers told the Associated Press, “I like the fact that [Sanders] is willing to fight for a better America — for the least, the fallen, the left behind.” A new WBUR poll shows Sanders has widened his lead to double digits among likely New Hampshire Democratic voters ahead of next month’s primary election.

This comes as The New York Times reports California Senator Kamala Harris — who suspended her campaign last December — is weighing an endorsement of Joe Biden.

Meanwhile, billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has surged to fourth place nationally, with about 9% in a recent Monmouth University poll, after spending a quarter-billion dollars on political ads since joining the race — far more than all other Democratic candidates. Bloomberg has said he’ll spend up to $2 billion of his own money to defeat Trump, no matter who the Democratic nominee is, even if it’s Sen. Bernie Sanders.
