Democratic 2020 hopefuls vie for African American support in So. Carolina ahead of party convention

Four of the Democratic presidential candidates were in Charleston on Saturday outlining their plans — in 15 minutes or less — for improving the livelihood of African Americans.

The two-hour event was the first large televised gathering to date of the Democratic primary candidates in South Carolina, for a forum hosted by the Black Economic Alliance, a nonpartisan group of black business leaders. About 800 people attended.

“This forum is a love letter to the black community,” said Akunna Cook, executive director of the group. “A declaration that our concerns matter, that our voices matter and that our votes matter and — without a doubt — that our lives matter.”

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke and U.S. Sens. Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren attended Saturday’s forum.

2. We probably won't.

 

The South Carolina Group doesn't have a host and there aren't many subscribers to that group. It is one of the most inactive state groups on DU.

I missed it because I was wrong about the time. Fortunately I should have the ability to stream it with my provider. I apologize for having the time wrong and am especially glad I advised people to check their listings. :/
