SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – Democratic Presidential Candidate and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is making stops in two Upstate counties, Thursday.

Booker’s three-day swing through South Carolina begins with a tour of ReGenesis Community Development Environmental Sites at 4:15pm on April 25.

After that tour, Booker will host Conversation with Cory at the C.C. Woodson Community Center on Bomar Avenue at 5:00pm.

β€œWe’re excited he chose to do an event here in Spartanburg,” said Spartanburg County Democratic Party Chair Angela Geter. “With South Carolina being the first Southern state to hold a primary, Spartanburg Democrats play an important role in electing our nominee. That makes it critically important for Democrats in this region to hear the candidates speak so they can make an informed decision.”

Later, Booker will hold another Conversation with Cory at the Pacolet River Baptist Association on Lovers Lane Road in Union at 7:00pm.
