Special to the State

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is opening two more field offices in South Carolina on Thursday.

The new offices in Anderson and Rock Hill will add to four other field offices the campaign opened earlier this year in Charleston, Columbia, Florence and Greenville, Sanders’ campaign said.

The campaign is touting the openings as a sign of its expansion in the Palmetto State leading up to the Feb. 27 Democratic presidential primary.

Sanders is in second place in South Carolina with 30 percent support, trailing Hillary Clinton who has 58 percent support, according to a Real Clear Politics average.

The campaign will hold openings at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at each office. The Rock Hill office is at 2371 Cherry Road. The Anderson office is at 115 North Main Street.
