DNC’s “Forward Together” Bus Tour Rolls into Columbia and Orangeburg
On Monday, October 17, the South Carolina Democratic Party Coordinated Campaign will welcome the DNC’s “Forward Together” bus tour to South Carolina, with stops in Columbia and Orangeburg. We’d love to see you at one of the stops!
The “Forward Together” tour is the driving force behind national Democrats’ closing argument to voters in the final days of the 2016 election. Democratic officials, community leaders, celebrities, activists, and hard-working Americans are traveling on two buses to highlight what’s at stake in this election and mobilize people to vote and volunteer.
The tour is making stops at universities, Democratic field offices, churches, small businesses, and community centers, focusing on communities that are critical to Democratic victory and that have the most at stake in this election – communities of color, working families, women, students, millennials, and more.
The Forward Together schedule is outlined below. We will be joined at all events by Democratic candidates running for federal, state, and local offices.
