US Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders hailed his back-to-back wins in the New Hampshire primary, Nevada caucuses and in Iowa’s popular vote during the campaign rally he held in South Carolina’s Spartanburg on Thursday, ahead of the state’s primary.
“We are building an unprecedented, multi-generational, multi-racial grassroots movement,” said Sanders.
“The reason we won the popular vote in Iowa, the reason we won the New Hampshire primary, the reason we won the Nevada caucus is because our volunteers knocked on hundreds and hundreds of thousands of doors.”
Sanders also took aim at billionaires. “We don’t waste time going to billionaires’ homes begging for money,” he said.
“This is a campaign, we say that unapologetically. And I say this as a son of the American working class: this is a campaign of the working class by the working class and for the working class.”
The South Carolina primary, the fourth nominating contest in the Democratic Party’s presidential primaries for the 2020 election, is set to take place on February 29.
