Where you can spend a Saturday morning with Elizabeth Warren in SC

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren will be back in South Carolinaon Saturday, a little more than three weeks after her last appearance on the Palmetto State’s campaign trail.

Warren is holding an event in Greenville at 11 a.m. Saturday at the West End Community Development Center, 404 Vardy Road.

Saturday’s appearance is part of a series of organizing events that Warren is holding around the country to boost support for the U.S. senator from Massachusetts’ presidential campaign in early primary states.

Warren made her first campaign stop in South Carolina at Columbia College on Jan. 23, pitching an economically populist agenda aimed at struggling middle-class voters. She is one of an increasingly crowded field of Democratic challengers running to defeat Republican Donald Trump in 2020.

Warren’s appearance this week follows S.C. trips two other Democratic candidates made this past weekend. U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York meet with local Democratic and business leaders in Columbia, while U.S. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey spoke to a crowd at Fairfield Central High School.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California also is expected to make her second campaign appearance in South Carolina this weekend.
