Post-South Carolina, Joe Biden’s campaign has seen a complete transformation
Following Joe Biden’s resounding victory in South Carolina, Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has seen a complete transformation.
Not only is he winning primaries and leading in the all-important delegate count, but fundraising has gone through the roof and his events are as crowded and energetic as ever.
On Saturday, the former vice president’s campaign announced that it has raised a stunning $22 million over the course of just five days following his stunning political comeback.
While the Democratic contest is still essentially a two-person race between Biden and Sanders, it’s clear that many primary voters are starting to coalesce behind the vice president.
