In the case of a defeat, Biden's in South Carolina had been speculation about an end to his election campaign.
Biden thanked the voters in South Carolina. "A few days ago, the press and experts have declared this candidacy is dead," said the Ex-Vice-President. "We are very much alive."

In South Carolina, he came up with a good eleven percent to the third place. The other candidates remained in single digits.
Bloomberg stepped in South Carolina - as with the other previous primaries -. The multi-billionaire is only entered late into the race and for the first time on "Super Tuesday" on the ballot. President Trump wrote on Saturday evening on Twitter, the victory of the "sleepy" Joe Biden in South Carolina should be the end of the "joke of the election campaign" of the "Mini-Mike Bloomberg".
