President Trump won the presidential contest in South Carolina on Tuesday, according to a projection from The Associated Press, laying claim to the state’s nine electoral votes.
The two energy companies behind plans to build a natural gas pipeline spanning from West Virginia to North Carolina announced Sunday that the project was canceled, citing ongoing legal battles over the pipeline’s construction.
Georgia’s Seventh District was once reliably Republican territory, but it includes an increasingly diverse section of metro Atlanta. Now there are contested primaries on both sides for the seat held by Representative Rob Woodall, a Republican who is not running for re-election. Mr. Woodall won by fewer than 500 votes in 2018, and his opponent in that race, Carolyn Bourdeaux, is again seeking the Democratic nomination. Another Democrat in the race, Nabilah Islam, was endorsed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

2020 Democratic presidential candidates speak after getting results in the South Carolina primary.
The win for Biden, along with at least 20 of the 54 delegates at stake, gives his campaign a much-needed shot in the arm ahead of Tuesday’s primaries next week, when 14 states vote. Sanders was set to collect at least three delegates in South Carolina.
Condon also added that the ticket system is not unique to the Charleston debate.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume weighs in on the 2020 Democratic field heading into South Carolina primary.
Data circulated by Google showed that the Vermont lawmaker was the most searched candidate on its platform during the two-hour debate, while Twitter said Sanders was the most tweeted about, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
But almost no candidate was unscathed in the fiery Democratic debate, which took place just four days before the pivotal South Carolina primary and a week ahead of Super Tuesday.
Eine Woche vor dem Superwahltag und nur wenige Tage vor den Abstimmungen in South Carolina haben sich die US-Demokraten auf den Favoriten Sanders eingeschossen. Dieser stand bei einer TV-Debatte immens in der Kritik.
The candidates on the stage are Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and billionaire activist Tom Steyer.
Among the early-nominating states, Biden has been expected to have his strongest showing in South Carolina, in part because of his popularity among black voters.
An Economist-YouGov national poll this month found that 49 percent of black voters said Biden was their first choice among the Democratic presidential candidates. In contrast, only 13 percent chose Warren, while 11 percent picked Sanders.
The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders.
In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten.
