COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Hillary Clinton is relishing her big South Carolina win.
She told her victory rally that “tomorrow this campaign goes national” as she and rival Bernie Sanders compete for the Super Tuesday states.
To cheers, Clinton said: “When we stand together there is no barrier too big to break.”
Sanders congratulated Clinton on her victory and reminded her that the campaign is just beginning.
Hillary Clinton’s victory in South Carolina means she will pick up most of the state’s delegates, widening her overall lead in AP’s delegate count.
With 53 delegates at stake, Clinton will receive at least 31. Bernie Sanders will pick up at least 12.
Clinton already holds a large lead among superdelegates, the party leaders and members of Congress who can support any candidate. Including superdelegates, Clinton now has at least 536 delegates, according to AP’s count. Sanders has at least 83.
It takes 2,383 delegates to win the nomination.
