South Carolina elected official backs Sanders over Biden

COLUMBIA (AP) — A South Carolina elected official who endorsed Joe Biden last month is switching her allegiance to Bernie Sanders in the state’s first-in-the-South presidential primary, saying she had viewed the former vice president – whose support in the state is considered deep – as “a compromise choice”. Dalhi Myers told The Associated Press (AP) on Wednesday that she was making the change in part because she values what she sees as Sanders’ strength in being able to go toe-to-toe with United States (US) President Donald Trump in the general election.  More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
