CHARLESTON, South Carolina — Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders went toe-to-toe for South Carolina Democrats’ love Saturday night, and it was clear that Clinton came out on top in a state she’s counting on as a firewall.

The former secretary of state received a rousing standing ovation and strong cheers throughout her speech from the black-majority crowd at the First in the South dinner.
