Here's who's running Beto O'Rourke's South Carolina campaign

WASHINGTON -- Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is forming his South Carolina campaign team, choosing veterans with ties to local elected officials whose endorsements would be considered coups in the Palmetto State.

The former U.S. congressman from Texas has selected Lauren Harper and Tyler Jones to serve as state director and senior adviser, respectively, according to an official announcement shared first with McClatchy.

Harper is a former policy and communications adviser to Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin, the city’s first black chief executive and current president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
