Speakers on behalf of the Biden Campaign included Mayor Randall L. Woodfin of Birmingham, actor Sean Patrick Thomas, state representative Bill Clyburn and Joe Biden’s sister, Valerie Biden Owens. The event was hosted by Antjuan Seawright, a political strategist in the Palmetto State.
They spoke to several dozen attendees about why they support former Vice President Biden and encouraged them to vote for him in the upcoming Democratic Primary Election.
Thomas said that he feels Biden cares for all of the people of this country and is the best choice for president.
“Now, I grew up in Delaware, which is, you know, not the most integrated place. Joe Biden and his family make you feel like they’re your friends, like they’re your neighbor. He really cares and he empathizes and he takes everyone in.”
