WINNSBORO – Democratic presidential candidate Corey Booker brought his campaign to Fairfield County Sunday afternoon. About 200 people packed the Fairfield Central High School cafeteria to hear him speak.

Instead of taking the stage, Booker, a senator from New Jersey, hopped the stair railing and spoke to the audience from the floor for almost half an hour. He then introduced SC House Rep. Annie McDaniel, Tangy Brice Jacobs and School Superintendent Dr. J. R. Green.

Booker then proceeded to questions the three on topics of interest to the County and talked about ways to solve some of the county’s problems. Then it was back to the floor to take questions from the audience, touching on a number of issues like gun control, homelessness, better pay and better race relationships.

“My first campaign stop as a candidate for presidency, I wanted to come to this community because my whole career is about going to the places that people often don’t go to, don’t talk about, don’t face and confront,” Booker said.

While in the Columbia area, Booker made several other campaign stops.
