Barack Obama is hoping for new momentum as he heads into Super Tuesday. The Democrat Illinois senator came out victorious in the South Carolina primary, one of the state-by-state contests that will determine who becomes the presidential candidates for elections in November.
22 states hold votes on February 5, known as Super Tuesday. Obama said: “In nine days, nine short days, nearly half the nation will have the chance to join us in saying that we are tired of business-as-usual in Washington, we are hungry for change, and we are ready to believe again.”
After his victory, Obama headed off to the state of Georgia. And rival Hillary Clinton was in Tennessee, even before the results in South Carolina were announced.
She said: “The difference between the politician and the statesman is that the politician looks to the next election, and the statesman looks to the next generation. So I want this election to be about the next generation.” The Republican candidates are focused on their next primary in Florida on Tuesday.
