GROUP FORMS IN EARLY-VOTING PALMETTO STATE …
|| By FITSNEWS || A movement hoping to get U.S. vice president Joe Biden to jump into the Democratic presidential contest is picking up steam …
The “Ridin’ with Biden” organization rolled out a list of South Carolina supporters this week – including support staff to help work the media and grassroots. Leading the effort? S.C. Senator Gerald Malloy and former state superintendent of education Inez Tenenbaum.
“Over the last few weeks, I have been hearing from folks in my Senate District and throughout the state and the message is clear: South Carolina wants Vice President Biden to not only run for President, but to be the next President of the United States,” Malloy said. “South Carolina is ready to lead the effort to Draft Biden.”
Tenenbaum said Biden “would make South Carolina Democrats proud as the next Democratic nominee and ultimately the next President of the United States.”
Four staffers – state director Isaiah Nelson, political director Kendall Corley, outreach director Morgan Allison and field director Lauren Nastoff – were also announced.
In other words “Ridin’ with Biden” is an actual thing … not just a press release from a couple of politicians.
Will the effort work?
Survey says: Getting warm.
