Biden says rivals should consider dropping out if they can't win over black voters

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that some of his 2020 Democratic primary rivals should consider exiting the race if they are unable to demonstrate an ability to win over minority voters in the upcoming South Carolina primary.

“They would have to consider dropping out, not because I want them to or anybody else does, but because the victories and losses are going to dictate it,” Biden said in a brief interview with The Post and Courier.

“How do you stay in if you have demonstrated you can’t get any African American support?” Biden added. “How do you stay in if you don’t get support in South Carolina? So I just think the process is going to take care of that. I don’t think it requires anybody to say, ‘get out of the race.’”
