With Super Tuesday looming, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won her first decisive victory in the 2016 presidential race Saturday.
The landslide victory in South Carolina’s Democratic primary marks a turning point for Clinton, who lost handily eight years ago to a senator named Barack Obama.
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders did particularly poorly among the Palmetto State’s African-American population, losing to Clinton 76 percent to 24 percent.
Facing 11 states on March 1 and the March 15 Illinois primary, Sanders hopes to gain the momentum he lost in South Carolina, while Clinton wants to build.
