This week the 2020 race for the White House shifts to South Carolina – the first in the south. While a lot of focus is placed on the “first in the nation,” some argue South Carolina carries more weight. Since 1992, only one democratic candidate has lost the state. The state is also more diverse than Iowa and New Hampshire; people of color make up 30 percent of the population. On the latest stop of our listening tour, Soledad O’Brien sits down with professors H. Gibbs Knotts and Jordan Ragusa, co-authors of “First in the South: Why South Carolina’s Presidential Primary Matters.”
