Joe Biden has been projected as the winner of the South Carolina Democratic primary, providing a boost to the struggling campaign of the former Vice President.
Biden was projected as the winner of the primary by several media outlets on Saturday night. Initial returns from the Palmetto State show Biden winning the state in resounding fashion, suggesting that his margin of victory may breathe a further amount of life into his campaign.
The win by the once-impenetrable frontrunner of the Democratic party field staves off a quick Bernie Sanders victory, and possibly unifies Democrats who oppose nominating the democratic socialist behind Vice President Biden.
Joe Biden has run for President three times over the course of his political career, having previously served as a Senator from Delaware. He’s never won a primary or caucus before, making the South Carolina victory the first instance he’s won a state outright.
Biden’s strong support from Black voters proved crucial in his victory. South Carolina is the first southern state to vote in the primary, and it’s the first state with a majority of Black Democrats- a constituency that will likely prove critical over the course of the contest.
Biden is hoping for a considerable media boost in light of his victory. However, Super Tuesday will occur this week, and as of Saturday, the former Vice President has barely campaigned in the states, which will feature 40% of the Democratic electorate, including both California and Texas.
Should Biden put up a strong Super Tuesday performance, a horse race between the legacy Democrat and the upstart Vermont socialist could prove in the cards. But if Sanders wins both California and Texas, it’s looking likely that the Democratic Party will have chosen their nominee.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
