COLUMBIA, S.C. — Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic presidential primary in South Carolina on Saturday. She won the overwhelming support of black voters on her way to a commanding victory over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

The win for Clinton is her third in the first four contests of the 2016 campaign. And it gives her a blowout to match Sanders’ dominating triumph in New Hampshire.

Early results of exit polls taken for The Associated Press and television networks find that Clinton won the support of 8 in 10 African-Americans, who made up the majority of voters in Saturday’s primary.

That bodes well for Clinton headed into Super Tuesday contests across the South, where several states are home to large populations of black voters.
