Former Vice President Joe Biden announced Tuesday his plans to leave New Hampshire before polls close in the nation’s first primary; traveling to South Carolina to headline a “kick-off rally.”
“The former vice president abruptly announced on Tuesday morning that he won’t spend primary night in New Hampshire as planned and instead is flying to South Carolina to headline a newly scheduled kick-off rally in the state he’s long considered his campaign firewall,” reports Fox News.
“We’re going to head to South Carolina tonight,” Biden told reporters Tuesday. “And I’m going to Nevada… we’ve got to look at them all.”
