With a field of twenty-four possible candidates running for the Democratic nomination, several are already focusing on South Carolina. One who has already made several campaign trips to the state is kamala Harris. On June 21 and 22, Harris will return to South Carolina where she will attend the South Carolina Democratic Party’s Convention and Congressman James Clyburn’s World Famous Fish Fry. She will also hold meet and greets with South Carolina women and with party officials from across the state and participate in Planned Parenthood Action’s forum on reproductive rights. Harris recently released a plan to protect women’s access to health care, which would require states like South Carolina to obtain approval from her Department of Justice before any abortion law or practice can take effect.
Prior to the convention on Saturday, Harris will hold a rally with volunteers from across South Carolina. Harris’ South Carolina campaign recently announced a paid organizing presence in every region of the state and opened an office in Columbia earlier this week.
This will be Harris’ eighth trip to South Carolina as a presidential candidate. She previously held town halls and meet and greets in several locations across the state including Anderson, Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, Hemingway, Holly Hill, Myrtle Beach, Orangeburg, Rock Hill, St. George, and Spartanburg. She also visited several women-owned businesses, stopped by Rodney Scott’s BBQ for lunch, gave the keynote address at the SC NAACP Freedom Fund dinner and attended the Pink Ice Gala with her fellow AKAs in Columbia.
