Democratic debate preview: Democrats seek to slow Sanders’s momentum

CHARLESTON, S.C.– More than 500 individuals crowded into a huge remodelled storage facility in downtown Charleston on Monday night to hear Warren make her case to South Carolina.

Warren spoke mainly about her plan to impose a 2 percent wealth tax on those with fortunes of $50 million or more, arguing that the profits gathered might fund a host of education efforts.

But in the audience, voters were stressed over something else– whether Warren can win. Before voting started, Gail Hardie, a 69- year-old retired teacher, said that she and her hubby, Bob, were with Warren. Now they’re considering Biden rather.

” We’re quite worried about beating Donald Trump, and I don’t like the increase of Bernie,” stated Hardie, who, in addition to her husband, volunteers for the gun-control company Mamas Need Action. She stated that Sanders didn’t share her strong support for gun legislation and expressed issue that Republicans have actually been motivated by state-level Republican companies to choose Sanders in the Democratic primary.

Others stated they were not concerned by Warren’s displaying in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.

Grimmage stated that Warren has actually had her support for months. “She’s been constant from Day One,” she stated.

Regina Farrington, 60, a retired supervisor with Verizon, stated she has actually supported Warren for president because her very first look on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” in2009 “It’s just her positions on the corrupting influence of wealth in this country and what she wishes to do to combat it,” she said.

Her sis Mary Farrington, 69, stated she hopes Warren’s perky appearance in the Nevada governmental argument would assist her in South Carolina.

Both females said that if Warren drops out, they would hesitantly support Sanders. “Their concepts, they’re pretty intertwined,” Mary Farrington said.

” It’s extremely frustrating,” Regina included.
