Hillary Clinton is the strong favorite in South Carolina, as the Democratic front runner looks to solidify that position with a win over Bernie Sanders in the Palmetto State on Saturday.
“The polls are open in South Carolina, and I’m feeling great,” Clinton said in a fundraising email sent out early Saturday to supporters.
Clinton and Sanders shadowed each other in South Carolina on Friday for their final pitch to voters, making stops in Orangeburg and Columbia.
Hillary had her husband, the former President, along to get out the vote as well.
Sanders was doing double duty on Friday, as he also held a rally in Minnesota, one of the eleven states that votes on Super Tuesday, March 1.
Neither Sanders nor Clinton will wait around in South Carolina for the results of Saturday’s vote – Clinton will stump for votes in Alabama, while Sanders is in Texas.
A win for Clinton in South Carolina might foreshadow a series of wins in the South on Tuesday, as Clinton looks to take charge of the Democratic race.
Polls are open in the Palmetto State from 7 am to 7 pm.
53 delegates are at stake in that state; they are handed out proportional to the vote for candidates who receive over 15 percent.
