Democratic strategists Kevin Chavous and Christian Hanley weigh in on the territory of the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls took to the stage in South Carolina on Saturday, a number of swings at the President Trump, and position yourself as the front-runner in a Packed race for the democratic nomination in a vital primary state.

The candidates commented on the state of the Democratic party Convention, with more dramatic language to condemn the current occupant of the White house.


Sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Trump described as “the most dangerous President in American history,” while Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., to keep track of a reference to her background as a Prosecutor and called for democratic activists, “” Trump’s record in office.

“We keep track of the guy. Let’s trace the case,” she said.

The former Vice-President Joe Biden, who is the frontrunner in the polls, was scheduled to speak, in the evening-and his rivals don’t mention him by name, but sought under the claim that he is the most electable candidate.

Harris urged the voters to “turn back the clock”, a possible reference to Biden, the representation of a prior era of American politics. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who has said the polls in the last few weeks, sneaks, your ideas Republicans could reach.

“I believe that if we are always in the big fights for the big ideas, if it is, we are Democrats and Republicans,” she said. “That’s what it is, that we are worth to us, it is for the people in the battle. That is why we are here to shape the future-not only for those who are born in privilege, but to build a future for all. And that is what my campaign is.”


Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who has announced their success in the moderate middle West of the States, told the audience that “I know how to win.”

Biden even appeared on stage at a Friday night fish fry, held by house majority whip Jim Clyburn, D-S. C., and propagated by his friendships with Clyburn and other South Carolina politicians. He also urged the unity of his party, says that, whoever may be the candidate, “we have to stay together and decide to be a Democrat.”

Biden was dogged by criticism in recent days over remarks he made about the possibility of working with the racial segregation Democrats and “get things done” in the past few decades He was criticized by Sen. Cory Booker, D-N. J., who called on Biden to apologize, and on Saturday from Harris.


“I think clearly, I, his perspective on this is wrong, and if the people he spoke with such affection had their way, I would never have been able to, the United States senator,” she told reporters.

Biden had planned to meet with black leaders behind closed doors on Friday.

South Carolina has the largest electorate of the four early nominating States, and the mix of black voters and moderate protein candidates, a test site is in front of a Super Tuesday slate that other similar Southern States and hundreds of delegates on the game.

The Convention also gave Democrats an opportunity to pitch for the support of African Americans, the strike with Sanders in what he called a “grotesque level of racial differences in America.”

“We have recently celebrated, Juneteenth, but a hundred and fifty four years after this day, we see a racial gap that leaves the average black family with ten times less wealth than the average white family. We see the infant mortality rate in black communities is more than double for the white communities. We see young people, African-Americans, a college degree, seven thousand dollars more debt than white graduates. We see black women make up 61 percent of the white men.”

“We go to the end of that absurdity,” he said, before he, too, explains the criminal justice system is “plagued by racism.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., appeared to some time at home, after a black man was shot and a policeman shot. Buttigieg was jeered by black protesters to go home. He told the crowd, in South Carolina, the “we will heal and we become stronger in the broken place.”

Harris, meanwhile, is focused on Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan and asked if it meant a return to segregation.


“You mean, he wants to have been integrated back to us in front of schools?”, she asked. “You mean, he wants to return to us before the Voting Rights Act was enacted? That is, he wants to return to the us before the Civil Rights Act was enacted? He means, he wants to return to us, before Roe v. Wade was enacted?”

“Because we’re not going back,” she said.
