Har­ris and Clyburn file paper­work for Biden to appear on South Car­oli­na bal­lot

Vice Pres­i­dent Kamala Har­ris is trav­el­ing to Colum­bia, South Car­oli­na, on Fri­day to join Rep. Jim Clyburn (D‑SC) in fil­ing paper­work for Pres­i­dent Joe Biden to appear on the state’s Demo­c­ra­t­ic pres­i­den­tial pri­ma­ry bal­lot.
Biden ele­vat­ed South Car­oli­na in the Demo­c­ra­t­ic nom­i­nat­ing cal­en­dar after the state saved his 2020 pri­ma­ry hopes in the last Super Tues­day. Clyburn’s endorse­ment and the sup­port of black vot­ers were inte­gral to Biden’s wins in the state fol­low­ing dis­mal per­for­mances in the Iowa cau­cus­es and New Hamp­shire and Neva­da pri­maries.
