Bernie Sanders back in South Carolina amid multistate blitz


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Just two weeks before Election Day, Sen. Bernie Sanders is back in South Carolina as part of a swing through early-voting states on the presidential primary calendar.

Sanders plans to speak Saturday at a "Medicare for All" rally in Columbia being put on by Our Revolution, an offshoot of his 2016 Democratic presidential effort.

The Vermont independent hasn't announced intentions about 2020. But as the Nov. 6 election nears, he's visiting more than half a dozen states to campaign with congressional candidates.

But none is expected to be with him in South Carolina, home to the first-in-the-South presidential primaries.

South Carolina has seen recent visits from two Democratic senators who also are potential Democratic hopefuls, New Jersey's Cory Booker and California's Kamala Harris. Each campaigned with candidates.
