Democratic presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and John Edwards appealed for votes in South Carolina yesterday, while Hillary Clinton campaigned in the Northeast — taking heat for leaving the state before its nominating contest this weekend.
Edwards, a former senator from neighboring North Carolina, criticized the New York senator for not being in South Carolina so close to the Democratic primary election Saturday, which he hopes will propel him out of third place in the Democratic nominating race.
“Senator Clinton was here on Monday night for the debate that we had in Myrtle Beach. But then right after the debate she flew out.
“The question is — if she’s not going to spend time here the week before the South Carolina primary, what do you think the chances are she’s going to come back after the primary?” Edwards told a meeting hall in Bennettsville.
Clinton was in Philadelphia and neighbouring New Jersey, one of more than 20 states that vote in the “Super Tuesday” nominating contests on Feb. 5 to pick Democratic and Republican candidates for the November election.
