CHARLESTON, S.C. — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will deliver the keynote address to the Southern Regional Meeting of the National Federation of Democratic Women on Saturday, the South Carolina Women’s Democratic Council announced.

“We are elated that he has chosen to speak to our Southern Region women,” the South Carolina Women’s Democratic Council said in a statement announcing the event.

Sanders’ keynote address comes days after more than 1,000 women across the Palmetto state endorsed his candidacy, signaling the campaign’s growing strength among South Carolina women.

“Sen. Sanders has been a dedicated advocate of women’s rights for more than thirty years,” state director Christopher Covert said Sunday. “We are thrilled to partner with an organization whose mission is to encourage political engagement among women in South Carolina.”

An October CNN/ORC poll found that 69 percent of likely women voters in South Carolina were “still trying to decide” which candidate to support in February’s Democratic primary.
