Sen. Tim Scott: Sanders’ rivals face a ‘make-or-break moment’ in South Carolina debate

The rest of the Democratic field is “in trouble” if Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., can continue his winning streak in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., predicted Tuesday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Sandra Smith, Scott said that South Carolina is the “entire field’s make-or-break moment.”

“If you think about not only this Saturday but go to Super Tuesday where Texas and California represent about a third of what Bernie would need in order to become the nominee…” Scott mused. “If he has the momentum coming out of South Carolina … My definition of momentum is if Joe Biden does not win by double digits, it’s a loss for him and perhaps the end of his campaign.”

“For Bernie,” Scott continued, “you think about this: three weeks ago Biden had a 30-point lead in South Carolina. Bernie’s numbers within the African-American community in South Carolina are up close to 50 percent from 2016.”

“If that momentum continues, Katie bar the door,” Scott stated.
