Less than two years into her Senate tenure, 2020 hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is heading to the early presidential primary state of South Carolina next week to campaign for both the Democratic Party and candidates in the state. She reportedly will attend fundraisers and public events in Columbia and Greenville.
South Carolina has become especially significant to Harris and other Democrats in the run-up to 2020. Then-President Barack Obama and then-candidate Hillary Clinton both relied on the state to help cement their credentials with black voters.
Harris already visited another early primary state this year, Nevada. She is also slated to travel to Iowa later in the month.
