We’re going county to county, putting in the work to turn out voters. I’m thankful for all the volunteers I’ve met so far — we’re going to win this election because of all of your hard work.

February is Black History Month, and I was honored to be given the chance to speak at Mount Zion United Methodist’s Black History Month service. We stand on the shoulders of giants — and that’s something we can never forget.

Every South Carolinian should feel seen and heard — and at the Human Rights Campaign event in Charleston, I made a promise that I intend to keep: When I’m in Washington, I will fight for the rights of all South Carolinians.

Finally, we ended the month in Charleston with the first of what will be many town halls across the state. South Carolinians have felt left behind for too long, and on this campaign we intend to listen to their concerns and their problems, and make a promise of a brighter future.
