Who is Cory Booker?
Cory Booker will meet with State House Democrats when the presidential candidate returns to South Carolina next week.
The senator from New Jersey will meet with the House Democratic Caucus in Columbia on Thursday, Booker’s presidential campaign said.
Later, Booker will travel to Spartanburg to meet with the community group ReGenesis to talk about cleanup efforts at a polluted superfund site. ReGenesis was founded by former state Rep. Harold Mitchell.
Booker will also make appearances in Union, Clarendon, Hampton and Beaufort counties over April 26 and 27, the campaign said without announcing details on those visits. The trip will mark one milestone for Booker; April 27 will be the senator’s 50th birthday.
Booker has made an effort to focus on smaller towns in his past trips to South Carolina. He started his S.C. campaign with an appearance in Fairfield County, and held his CNN town hall last month in Orangeburg.
The latest trip comes as Booker announced a new slate of endorsements. Booker has picked up the support of state Reps. Leola Robinson-Simpson, D-Greenville and Annie McDaniel, D-Fairfield; Sumter County Sheriff Anthony Dennis, Clarendon County Auditor Patricia Pringle, and Manning Mayor Julia Nelson.
