Vice President Harris continues in South Carolina headlines
Vice President Kamala Harris She and President Biden returned to South Carolina on Friday for the first time since taking office.
And while the vice president’s main mission was to help raise money for the South Carolina Democratic Party—she headlined the party’s annual Blue Palmetto Dinner in Columbia—she was also there to say “thank you” and possibly send a sign.
Harris campaigned extensively in the state in 2019 — which has the fourth contest in the Democrats’ presidential nomination calendar and the first Southern primary — during the senator’s unsuccessful 2020 White House bid. Harris ended his campaign a few months before the South Carolina primary event.
But Biden’s stunning victory in the primary — where black voters play an outsized role in Palmetto State Democratic politics — propelled Biden toward the nomination after a disappointing performance in Iowa’s caucus, second-place finish in the New Hampshire primary and Nevada’s caucus. And after securing the nomination, Biden named Harris as his running mate and his general election victory made the senator the nation’s first woman and the first black vice president.
“We see how South Carolina brings significant representation to the presidential nomination process … and we see how the South Carolina Democrats put President Joe Biden and me on the way to the White House,” Harris thanked the audience. .
The biggest guessing game in the Democratic Party is whether the president will run for re-election. Biden, 79, has said several times that he wants a second term if he is in good health. If he campaigns for re-election in 2024 and wins, Biden will be 82 at the time of his second inauguration and 86 at the end of his second term.
If Biden does not run, Harris will be considered the front-runner for the nomination. But the vice president – like his boss – is saddled with the underwater approval rating.
Democratic South Carolina state senator Marlon Kimpson told Fox News that “the people here are getting ready if the president changes positions.”
And Kimpson, who was one of the first high-profile South Carolina Democrats to endorse Biden during the primary campaign, insisted that the halt by Harris in South Carolina “is a sign that if he [Biden] decides not to run, she will be ready to step up and campaign. ,
But Kimpson said the vice president has “some work to do.”
