(Charleston, S.C) Democratic presidential hopefuls are slated to take center stage at the Gaillard center for an NBC News debate Sunday, but Saturday they each got their own last word.
High ranking Democrats and their presidential candidates converged on the Marriott in Charleston for the South Carolina Democratic Party’s biggest fundraiser in the palmetto state. All 780 seats were sold out for the event titled the “First in the South” dinner.
House minority leader Nancy Pelose and former Attorney General Eric Holder were the notable attendees, but it a night for the candidates.
And energetic Martin O’Malley took several photos with the crowd before taking the stage.
Bernie Sanders spoke after O’Malley and Hillary Clinton closed out the night.
This was the first year that the dinner was held in Charleston rather than Columbia.
