Former Vice President Joe Biden lauded former U.S. President Barack Obama and late South African leader Nelson Mandela at a rally in South Carolina on Tuesday night after losing the second race in a row.

Biden said no one should write him off yet when his base, the black and brown voters, were just getting ready to vote.

Biden said Trump was breeding hate and trying to destroy everything the African American president did, including the Obama care.

He asked the black and brown voters to help him climb, reminding them he was the best for the job.

In New Hampshire, with over 55 percent of precincts reporting, Bernie Sanders was leading, followed by Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. Biden was trailing in the fifth position after Elizabeth Warren.

But Biden said more than 99 percent of African Americans were yet to make their voices heard and hoped they would rescue him from the first two out 50 states.
