Vice President Harris on Friday is traveling to South Carolina to register the Biden-Harris ticket for the state’s primary and to campaign in the Palmetto State, all alongside Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.).
Harris is set to deliver remarks at a campaign event with Clyburn and the two will officially file the paperwork for President Biden and Harris to appear in the South Carolina’s first-in-the-nation primary state.
“The President is honored to have Vice President Harris and his campaign co-chair Congressman Clyburn officially make him a candidate, once again, in what is now proudly the first-in-the-nation primary. The Biden-Harris coalition will be out in full force in South Carolina and will be how we defeat MAGA extremism once again in 2024,” Biden’s campaign manager, Michael Tyler, said in a statement.
Clyburn’s endorsement of Biden during the 2020 Democratic primary propelled him to a win in the South Carolina primary, which led the president to his overall victory in the Democratic primary. Clyburn, who is serving as a campaign co-chair for the Biden-Harris 2024 campaign, will give remarks on Friday about “what is at stake in the 2024 election,” according to the Biden campaign.
South Carolina is a first-in-the-nation primary state this cycle as a result of Biden’s recommendation to the Democratic National Committee. South Carolina’s February primary will come before those in New Hampshire, Nevada and Michigan.
“South Carolina Democrats represent the backbone of the Democratic Party and propelled Joe Biden to the Democratic nomination and eventually the White House,” Tyler said.
