BLUFFTON, S.C. (WSAV) – The first Democratic primary in South Carolina won’t be until February 2020, but some candidates are already getting a head start visiting the state.

Beto O’Rourke is one of the hopefuls brought his campaign to South Carolina, a key state for presidential candidates.

The Democratic presidential candidate spoke to voters in Bluffton Friday night. It’s his second visit to South Carolina in the last three weeks.

The latest South Carolina 2020 Presidential poll places him with just 5 percent of voter support, well behind frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

But that didn’t stop O’Rourke from beginning his campaign, and voters were lined up at H.E. McCracken Middle School to hear what he had to say.

On Monday, another Democratic presidential candidate is stopping in the Lowcountry. More on Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s visit here.
