Our Revolution is working to get out the vote in South Carolina, where State Rep. Wendell Gilliard is running for State Senate in South Carolina (SC – 42) in a special election this Tuesday! 

Gilliard kicked off his campaign with an economic justice bus tour and led a rally for higher wages with Bernie Sanders in Charleston. He was a 2020 campaign co-chair for Bernie and state director in South Carolina, and like Bernie, he has been a powerful champion champion of working people for decades. 

US Rep. Ro Khanna has also joined us in campaigning for Wendell Gilliard who’s been a union leader, a Charleston City Councilor, and a fighter in the SC House for good-paying jobs, neighborhood safety, and criminal justice reform. 

“We need a voice not afraid to speak truth to power,” Wendell said. “They want this seat so they can keep power in Columbia and not in your hands. They want to control the money, jobs, and opportunities.”
