Record turnout in Dem South Carolina Primary

Voters in Saturday's Democratic primary election turned out in droves to cast their votes.

So whether or not you're happy with Joe Biden's victory, the fact that over half a million voters made their way to the polls is a very big deal.

Yes, that was more folks pulling the proverbial lever than showed up in 2008.

That election saw the greatest turnout ever for a Democratic primary up to that point.

But this one set the new high water mark for South Carolina.

This bodes well for Democrats as we get closer to the General Election on November 3rd.

So even though the Rethuglicans are still going to try to keep minorities and college students from showing up on Election Day, this robust turnout shows that we may be successful nevertheless by simply getting our voters to show up.

And that's a very good thing.
