But Clyburn’s backing of Biden could be the endorsement that not only boosted voters to give the former vice president his first-ever primary win in South Carolina but also helped pave the way to his presidential nomination by way of a consolidation of moderate Democrats who, one by one, have since shuttered their campaigns to support him.
