2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren will be back in South Carolina next Monday, April 15.

The Massachusetts senator will appear in both Beaufort and Charleston next week, Warren’s campaign tells The State.

Warren will hold a rally at Whale Branch Middle School in Seabrook. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the event scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

Earlier in the day, Warren will hold a “coastal community forum” in Charleston with local elected officials, as well as faith and business leaders, the campaign said. The event will be held at 3 p.m. at the Schoolhouse, 720 Magnolia Rd.

Warren will also meet privately with faith leaders in Charleston.

This will be the progressive’s third visit to the first-in-the-South primary state since announcing her campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Warren kicked off her quest for the nomination with a campaign event at Columbia College in January. In February, Warren spoke to a crowd in Greenville.

Warren has added staff in South Carolina over the past month. In March, the senator named Alycia Albergottie, state director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, as her state director ahead of the 2020 primary next February.

Warren won’t be the only presidential contender in South Carolina that week. California Sen. Kamala Harris will hold events in the Palmetto State over Easter weekend from April 19 to April 21, including a Democratic Party event in Orangeburg County on April 20.
