Rep. Clyburn: ‘I’m Voting for Joe Biden, South Carolina Should Be Voting for Joe Biden’

‘We know Joe, but most importantly, Joe knows us’

EXCERPT:

CLYBURN: "And I’ve been saying to the media, I’ve known for a long time who I’m going to vote for. But I had not decided — well, not to share it with the public. But I want the public to know that I’m voting for Joe Biden. South Carolina should be voting for Joe Biden, and here’s why. There’s billboards around this county. On that billboard is my pledge. A lot of people ask me, why do you do billboards? Because my late wife said to me, 'I don’t care how many TV ads you run, I don't care how many radio ads you run. When you run for office, I want to see billboards.' That’s why I do billboards. And one of my colleagues says, 'This is the first time I’ve seen a political billboard, but no picture on it. Why isn’t your picture on the billboard?' I said, because it ain’t about me. It’s about the message on that billboard.”
