Joe Biden’s campaign made several stops in the Tri-County in the months leading up to the primary.  Biden himself visited Rock Hill’s historically black Clinton College in August of 2019. During that town hall visit, Biden promised that if he becomes president, he will remove the tax cap from the top one percent, provide affordable healthcare to all, and help those in public service unload their debt.

The presidential candidate’s senior advisor spoke at Winthrop University in September of 2019. Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, visited the Craft Stand in Lancaster in December of 2019.

Following the announcement of his victory on Saturday night, Biden tweeted, “Thank you, South Carolina! To all those who have been knocked down, counted out, and left behind — this is your campaign.”
