Biden asked a mostly black audience of several hundred in Sumter during the first day of a weekend visit to SC. The California senator has passed the Vermont senator Bernie Sanders since the first debates, in which she made headlines with an attack on Biden over his past opposition to federally mandated bussing of students, a way to integrate schools.

Kimpson, who has not endorsed a candidate, said: "It's one thing for people to get up and talk about what they're going to do, but one of the barometers for someone espousing what their plans are is to look at what they've done in their past".

Biden, 76, asked on Saturday afternoon during a speech in Sumter, South Carolina. "I regret it. I'm sorry for any of the pain or misconception that I caused anybody".

The criticism of Biden began last month after he recalled how, as a young senator from DE, he worked on some issues with two Southern Democratic segregationists in the U.S. Senate even though they agreed on little, offering that period as an example of a long-ago time of civility and himself as a consensus-seeker.

U.S. Senator Cory Booker, a rival candidate who is black, expressed surprise a day later that Biden had not apologised. "Look who won last time out", Biden said of the 2018 midterm elections.

On Saturday, Booker also responded to Biden's apology, saying, "First I want to say thank you. I've made the best decisions that I could at the moment they had to be made", Biden said.

Black voters have played a critical role in the Democratic primary process, and winning the party's nomination would be unlikely without their support.

Rodell Mollineau, a Democratic consultant and once a top aide to former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said Biden is fortunate his debate struggles occurred early in the nominating process.

"However, Mollineau said, Biden's campaign must view Harris" attack as 'more than a warning shot'. "Now with the technological revolution, we must ensure everyone can participate in the wealth it creates".

Gordon Brown urges culture change over anti-Semitism in Labour
Mr Watson said: 'Using expensive media lawyers in an attempt to silence staff members is as futile as it is stupid. Asked about the story, McDonnell told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "I've not said to sack anybody.


He pointed to what he called repeated missteps, including Biden's comments on segregationists and the former vice president's recent reversal on the Hyde Amendment, a long-standing congressional ban on using federal health care money to pay for abortions. As the state is a test of black support, both Biden and Harris as well as other Democrats have been addressing African American issues during campaign visits to the state. "And that's a good thing. And yes - I've changed also". Biden's lead among African American voters since he joined the race has proved more durable than many strategists expected, increasing the pressure on Harris to perform well in Iowa and New Hampshire to give her momentum as she heads into SC and other Southern states.

Never content to just stick to his guns, "Sleepy" Joe Biden - as the President has named him - has once again flip-flopped on a previous statement in order to appease the woke-scolds.

"It was the honor of my lifetime to serve with a man who I believe was a great president, a historic figure, and most important to me ― a close friend", Biden said. "He's the bully that I knew my whole life. They don't want to talk much about my time as vice president".

She has also begun embracing her controversial history as a prosecutor instead of shying away from it, telling voters that her record of taking on predators (she includes in that "big banks, big pharmaceutical companies, transnational gangs, and more") equips her to prosecute the "predator living in the White House". The program would create grants to cover down payment and closing costs.

Where have we heard that one before?

Harris is at fourth position among Democrats who released their fundraising totals.

"Growing up here in SC, that's meaningful to us", said Willis, who is white.

Booker told the audience the next president should have a track record of helping African-Americans.
