Excerpt:

Sen. Bernie Sanders and his advisors have been meeting with potential South Carolina campaign staffers as the Vermont democratic socialist looks to pull off a win in the states 2020 presidential primary, four years after Hillary Clinton crushed him there, CNBC has learned.

Sanders has been pushing to firm up his support among younger and more liberal voters. According to people familiar with the process, the senator has been flying possible hires to his home in Vermont and having in-depth conversations about how they can help his operation.

We are going to have a lot more events in the African-American communities this time around, Alexander, who is black, told CNBC. I think you are going to have them more involved with the faith community, with the seniors and as a total community as a whole.

We have been looking at staff and setting up an organization here in South Carolina, Alexander said. We had a conversations this past Friday about how its going to look and how its going to work for him. We are trying to find people who want to win and not just those who just want to be on a campaign. Its the question of do you want to win, and I want to win South Carolina.
