President Obama to visit state #48 before leaving office

Barack Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama plans to get one step closer to visiting all 50 states while in office with a trip to South Carolina this week.

U.S. Rep. James Clyburn says Obama plans to visit Benedict College in Columbia Friday.

It will be his first visit to the South Carolina since his hotly contested campaign in the state’s 2008 Democratic presidential primary against Hillary Rodham Clinton. The South Carolina Democrat released a statement about the visit to The State newspaper Sunday.

The visit would leave just South Dakota and Utah on Obama’s bucket list before he leaves office in January 2017.
