“I’m glad we are able to provide additional opportunities for Democrats to be a part of our First in the South Candidates Forum. Next Friday will be filled with informative discussions on the importance of the South and how Democrats in the South are building state parties that will change the narrative on how the Democratic Party is viewed,” said SCDP Chair Jaime Harrison. “All of these events will lead up to a forum in which our Presidential candidates will have substantive conversations on how our party is best suited to address the issues confronting middle class and working families in the South, and across our country.”
