FILE - In this Jan. 20, 2020, file photo Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., left, and businessman Tom Steyer sit together at the beginning of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day rally in Columbia, S.C.

If either scenario were to become reality following the Feb. 29 vote, Sanders may have Steyer to thank for eating into the former vice president’s support among black voters.
