Some SC Democrats say Sanders better off if he ‘got lost’

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is returning to South Carolina in a few weeks as he continues to feel out a potential 2020 presidential bid.

But Democrats in this early primary state say the visit isn’t wanted or helpful to their candidates in this heavily-Republican state as they prepare to face voters in the general election.

Sanders announced Tuesday he’d visit a number of states including South Carolina in the coming weeks.

Amanda Loveday is former executive director of South Carolina’s Democratic Party and previously did communications for U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, the state’s lone congressional Democrat. She says Sanders’ South Carolina trip is “extremely selfish” and not in the best interest of the state’s Democratic candidates.

Sanders finished a distant second to Hillary Clinton in South Carolina’s 2016 Democratic presidential primary.
