vote preference among regisisred democrats. clinton -- looking to capitalize on that lead made some campaign stops in the palmetto state yesterday. in williamsburg county -- clinton held a rally in kingstree where she addressed president obama's legacy and took the opportunity to knock republican presidential candidates who want to repeal the affordable care act. she also talked about how elected leaders can better represent the community. "i think you should go into politics with the idea that you want to help people and you want to help people have a better life, a better future, more opportunity. so, we have a difference in philosophy here." clinton also made stops in north charleston, myrtle beach and florence yesterday. we'll have more on her final campaign rounds in the midlands ahead in our next half hour of sunrise. last night, president bill clinton 'got out the vote' for his wife at fairfield middle school in winnsboro.

"and to hear what is happening to the children in this community is so horrific, it's so painful, it's almost hard to discuss." sanders followed his forum in flint with a rally in chicago last night. he will return to south carolina for campaign stops in the midlands today. wis will be bringing you complete team coverage of the democratic races starting tomorrow morning at 9am. we'll be live at the polls following the voters and the candidates.
