SC Dems Release Chair Chats Interview with Dr. Cornel West

Columbia, SC—Today, the South Carolina Democratic Party released a Chair Chats interview with Senator Bernie Sanders campaign surrogate Dr. Cornel West.

“It was an honor to interview Dr. Cornel West.  His thoughts on the current state of our country is always insightful. With his experience as a professor and activist, his comments on the Black Lives Matter movement and the outrageous rhetoric coming out of the Republican Party was truly inspirational,” said South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison. “I am proud of the reception our series is getting both in South Carolina and across the country. Chair Chats provides voters in South Carolina, and across the nation, a three-dimensional look at the Democratic candidates and political leaders who shape our party.”

Bernie Sanders for President South Carolina State Director Chris Covert added, “we’ve definitely seen that the message Sen. Sanders and Dr. West brought to South Carolina last week has resonated with people here. We’re excited for that to continue and happy that Dr. West got to sit down with Jamie for this chat. Dr. West believes, as we all do, that it’s time to take our government back from the millionaires and billionaires and rebuild the middle class. And that’s why he’s excited to help elect Sen. Sanders as the next president of the United States.”
