Vice President Joe Biden will appear next Tuesday at “Get Out the Vote” events at Morris College in Sumter and at the AME Zion Transformation Center in Rock Hill.
The Democrat will headline the events with U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn of Columbia, 5th District candidate Fran Person, and other Democratic leaders and candidates.
The Sumter event starts at 8 a.m. at Morris College on 100 West College St.
Biden will appear in Rock Hill at 1:30 p.m. at the center on 745 Saluda St.
The timing of Biden’s visit – a week before the Nov. 8 election – indicates Democrats think the presidential contest in South Carolina vote could be closer than expected.
Recent polls have shown GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump leading in South Carolina by anywhere from 2 to 15 percentage points.
