Sanders has already conceded defeat. “This campaign is just beginning. We won a decisive victory in new Hampshire. She won a decisive election in South Carolina. Now have a super Tuesday,” said Sanders.
“Super Tuesday”, when to vote will be 11 States that will be held in the U.S. on March 1. Another four States will vote next weekend, the Agency said.
Team Clinton hoped that her convincing victory in South Carolina, after wins, which is not easily in Iowa and Nevada, and the defeat in new Hampshire, will add to her points before “super Tuesday”, when they identified some 875 delegates who will choose the presidential candidate of the Democratic party.
