President Barack Obama has not been to South Carolina since the night he won the state’s Democratic primary for president seven years ago.
He looks to change that this week.
The president will make his first visit to the state since 2008 when he attends a youth rally at Benedict College in Columbia on Friday, The State newspaper reports.
Few details have been released so far. The White House also has not yet issued a formal itinerary, although it did confirm the visit.
South Carolina is one of three states that President Obama has not visited since becoming president. South Dakota and Utah are the other two.
