Joe Biden won the South Carolina primary on Saturday night.
The media is making a big deal out of it, and it is a big deal when you consider the fact that this is the third time Joe Biden has run for president and this is the first time he has ever won a primary.
BREAKING: Joe Biden Finally Wins a Primary
Former Vice President Joe Biden locked down a much needed win in South Carolina Saturday night as his campaign continues to struggle heading into Super Tuesday. Bernie Sanders has taken second place and Pete Buttigieg third.
Notably, Biden has run for president three times and this is his first primary or caucus victory.
After accepting an early loss in New Hampshire two weeks ago, Biden fled to South Carolina to defend his “firewall.” After losing Iowa and New Hampshire to rivals Buttigieg and Sanders, Biden rounded up a number of key endorsements and hit the campaign trail in hopes of putting a win on the board.
He has been raising significant amounts of money as the Democrat establishment hits the emergency button on a potential Sanders nomination.
Biden used his victory speech to take a shot at Bernie Sanders:
