INDEPENDENT SOCIALIST MAKING ANOTHER PALMETTO STATE SWING

|| By FITSNEWS || Bernie Sanders‘ insurgent Democratic presidential campaign has yet to take South Carolina by storm … but the independent socialist U.S. Senator from Vermont is hoping to change that very soon.

After a successful visit last month, Sanders is on his way back to the early voting Palmetto State …

Courtesy of the Sanders campaign, here is his itinerary …

Saturday, September 12

11 a.m. Benedict College Town Hall Meeting, Benedict College, HRC Arena, 1600 Harden Street, Columbia
Information for the public: Doors open at 10 a.m. The event is free and open to the public. Admission is first come, first served. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is strongly encouraged.

4 p.m. Florence Town Hall Meeting, Florence Civic Center Arena, 3300 W. Radio Drive, Florence
Information for the public: Doors open at 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Admission is first come, first served. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is strongly encouraged.

7:30 p.m. Winthrop University Rally, Winthrop University, The West Center, 701 Oakland Avenue, Rock Hill
Information for the public: Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Admission is first come, first served. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is strongly encouraged.

Sanders’ visit comes as frontrunner Hillary Clinton‘s campaign continues to unravel – and as U.S. vice president Joe Biden explores his options. In fact the “Draft Biden” movement – a.k.a. “Ridin’ with Biden” – officially launched in South Carolina last week (and just got a big story published in Politico).

According to the latest polling, Sanders enjoys a nine-point lead over Clinton in early voting New Hampshire and has pulled within striking distance in Iowa.  The best case scenario for his anti-establishment campaign involves Biden jumping in and pulling establishment votes away from a weakened Clinton – thus splitting the Democrats’ mushy middledom and leaving the uber-liberal progressives all to him.

Of course if Sanders’ populist appeal from the left keeps converting people the way Donald Trump‘s populist appeal is converting them from the right … watch out.  Both could win their respective nominations convincingly … and then realize they have more in common than anybody ever imagined.
