USA: 'Comeback kid' Biden singles out Putin as Sanders projected to win Nevada

United States, Las Vegas
February 23, 2020 at 04:30 GMT +00:00 · Published

US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden spoke at a campaign rally in Las Vegas, Saturday, as the Nevada Democratic caucus results projected Bernie Sanders as the winner.

"Look uhm, I know we don't have the final results yet, but I feel really good. you put me in a position, you know the press is ready to declare people dead quickly, but we're alive and we're coming back and we're going to win," Biden said.

"I think we're in a position now to move on in a way that we haven't been until this moment. I think we are going to go ... we are going to win in South Carolina, then super Tuesday and we are on our way," the Democratic hopeful added.

Biden went on to claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin would interfere in the elections to favour US President Donald Trump, stating that "we are going to have more help coming from Vladimir Putin for our president. We are going to have more help from Vladimir Putin, who wants somebody who he doesn't think can beat Trump."

"I turned on a couple of TV ads and I said 'where the hell did that one come from?' and the staff looked at me and said 'they're Trump ads'. Let's give Trump exactly what he doesn't want, let's give him you and Joe Biden as the nominee," Biden concluded.

Currently little less than 30 percent of the Nevada caucus votes were counted with Sanders currently holding 47 percent of votes, followed by Joe Biden with 23 percent, Buttigieg 14 percent and Elizabeth Warren with 8 percent.
