2. SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, Democratic presidential candidate:
"There's so many people here for me to say thank you, thank you, thank you to. I just spoke to our folks up and up in New Hampshire and they did a good job. But I want to tell you, the people of Nevada are watching. And I want to make it clear we praise their diversity as a state. And I'm going to be out there seeing them very soon. Tonight, though, we just heard from the first two of 50 states, two of em. Not all the nation. Not half the nation, not a quarter of the nation, not 10 percent, two, two. Now where I come from, that's the opening bell, not the closing bell. And the fight to end Donald Trump's presidency is just beginning, just beginning."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, Democratic presidential candidate:
"Look, we're moving (to) an especially important phase because up till now we haven't heard from the most committed constituency in the Democratic Party, the African-American community. And the fastest growing segment of society, the Latino community. I want you all to think of a number - 99.9 percent - That's the percentage of African-American voters who have not yet had a chance to vote in America. And one more number - 99.8. That's the percent of Latino voters who haven't had a chance to vote. So when you hear all these pundits and experts and cable TV talkers talk about the race, tell them it ain't over, man. We're just getting started. Our votes count, too."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, Democratic presidential candidate:
"You know, when they ask me, am I going to hold a grudge with Trump, what he's trying to do to my only living son, to going after me with lies and all the rest, well, you know, what I said is it's not about me and my son. That makes me angry. But presidents, presidents can't just fight. They got to heal. We've got to heal this country. And we have to do the same kind of courage and conviction. And by the way, I'm no Nelson Mandela. I'm not making that comparison. But his heart, his heart. All you ministers know what I'm talking about. His heart. It's not enough just to fight. We got to heal. The country so desperately needs it. Folks, that's the kind of courage and conviction we need in the Trump era and move this nation forward to a more perfect union. I know there's going to be the fight of my life, but this old song goes, 'Lord, don't move my mountain. Give me the ability to climb.' I can't do it alone. I need your help to climb that mountain. And together, we're going to beat Donald Trump so we can chip in and support those of us. Now listen to this, chip in and support our campaign. Text Joe 2 3, excuse me, I gotta get this right. Joe to 30330. All right. Let's get to work. Thank you. May God bless you all and may God protect our troops. Let's go do this."
5. Pull out to wide shot of rally, supporters holding signs
Predicting early on that he would "take a hit" in New Hampshire's primary after a distant fourth-place finish in Iowa, Joe Biden moved on to South Carolina Tuesday, a state critical to his campaign's success.
With the New Hampshire primary results still coming in, Joe Biden held a rally in Columbia, telling the crowd he is only getting started.
"We just heard from the first two of fifty states, two," Biden said. "Where I come from, that's the opening bell, not the closing bell," he added.
Speaking to a diverse crowd of supporters, Biden said 99 percent of African Americans and 98 percent of Latinos have not yet had the chance to vote yet.
"So when you hear all these pundits and experts and cable TV talkers talked about the race, tell them it ain't over, man. We're just getting started. Our votes count, too," Biden said to applause.
The former vice president has a lot at stake in South Carolina, where he has led polling and has long relationships with the heavily black electorate. But other candidates including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and billionaire Tom Steyer have been campaigning hard in the state.
Biden says in a release he plans to travel later in the week to Nevada, which holds its caucus vote later this month.
