South Carolinians “suspicious of this socialist title”: Rep. James Clyburn


A day after Senator Bernie Sanders’ resounding victory in the Nevada assemblies, MP James Clyburn, D-S.C. Said that his state’s voters could be uncomfortable voting for someone who calls himself a socialist.

“I think it will be an additional burden for us to have to carry this. This is South Carolina, and the South Carolinians are quite suspicious of this title socialist,” he said in ABC’s “This Week,” a day after Sanders’ punch Victory in the Nevada Caucuses

“We will let people know how we deal with these candidates and it may not match Nevada, New Hampshire or Iowa,” said Clyburn said ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos from South Carolina, location of the next primary democratic competition.

The House of Representatives majority whip has repeatedly said that he will hold back a democratic candidate’s approval in 2020 until after the South Carolina debate on Tuesday evening. Former Vice President Joe Biden told MSNBC on Wednesday that he thought he would receive Clyburn’s support.

Although Biden has consistently been a leader in surveys in South Carolina, his lead has narrowed in recent weeks. A poll released on Friday found that Sanders was only five points behind the vice president.

“It doesn’t make or break. It all depends on how it comes out,” said Clyburn Stephanopoulos of Biden’s opportunities in South Carolina.

“I think Make or Break is probably the following Tuesday – Super Tuesday,” he added.
