But he reminded them: ''You cannot win ‘em all.'
Sanders said he has a 'great chance' to win the Democratic nomination – with critical primaries in Virginia and other states three days away.
Sanders observed there are a ‘lot of states out there.'
‘And tonight we did not win in South Carolina,’ he noted, about an hour after the polls closed.
‘There are a lot of states in this country. Nobody wins them all,’ he reiterated, on a day when Biden racked up large percentages among African American voters and got a significant boost to his struggling and underfunded campaign.
‘I want to congratulate Joe Biden on his victory tonight,’ he said, to only a smattering of applause. ‘And now we enter super Tuesday in Virginia!’
Sanders has financial advantages over his rivals and a national following, with only Michael Bloomberg with his virtually unlimited resources posing a threat on the money front.
