Multiple news outlets, including CNN, ABC and the Associated Press called the race just before 11:30 a.m., while Fox News followed suit shortly after. 

During the Democratic primary, it was not apparent that Biden would be the Democratic nominee. Biden did not fare well in the first races of the primary, garnering very little support in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada. However, the president-elect picked up steam with a resounding win South Carolina, where Black voters came out to support him in overwhelming numbers. 

Biden was also buoyed in the state after an endorsement from House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.). Clyburn will appear on NBC's "Meet The Press" and CNN's "State of the Union."
