Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren will speak next Tuesday at Columbia’s Allen University.

Warren’s presidential campaign announced an “organizing event” for students at the university on Wednesday.

The event begins at 11:15 a.m. and is open to the public.

This appearance will be a quick return to South Carolina for Warren, who spoke in Beaufort and Charleston on Monday. The US. senator from Massachusetts has also spoken in Columbia and Greenville since announcing late last year her bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Other 2020 candidates also will be making stops in South Carolina in the coming days.

Bernie Sanders will hold events in Greenville and Spartanburg on Thursday and Friday. Kamala Harris will have college town halls on Friday and Saturday in Rock Hill and Orangeburg.
