With outlook grim in New Hampshire, Biden heads South today

Published: Tuesday, February 11, 2020 @ 11:44 AM

With the polls already open on Tuesday for the crucial vote in the New Hampshire Primary, former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign announced that he would not stick around the Granite State for the final results this evening, instead leaping ahead to South Carolina, which votes on February 29.

In a written statement sent to reporters, Biden's campaign said he would address his New Hampshire backers by livestream from the state capital of Columbia, South Carolina.

"I have enjoyed traveling across New Hampshire," Biden said in a statement. who added he was "looking forward to traveling to South Carolina this evening and Nevada later this week," the next two states in the 2020 race. 

The announcement was seen a distinct admission on primary day that Biden was not going to do well in the Granite State - as last Friday he started a final debate by saying he expected to take 'a hit' like his fourth place finish in Iowa.

Biden's poll numbers in New Hampshire have been going the wrong way in recent days, with the threat that he might be passed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), who has seen a surge of interest since Friday's debate.

Once the front runner in the Democratic Race, Biden's strategy especially envisioned South Carolina as a firewall, where he has strong support in the black community.
