US Election: Clinton Clears South Carolina Primary

Hillary Clinton has secured a big win over Bernie Sanders in the South Carolina primary, the latest battleground in the race to be Democratic presidential nominee.

Victory for Mrs Clinton was widely expected but it gives her momentum ahead of the “Super Tuesday” primaries in 11 states next week.

“Tomorrow (Monday) this campaign goes national,” she told cheering supporters. Mr Sanders has congratulated her but said the campaign was just beginning.

With almost all the votes counted Mrs Clinton leads Mr Sanders by an almost 50-point margin.
