Clinton campaign officials promise 'different kind of campaign' in 2016

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Hillary Clinton is taking no vote for granted in South Carolina, according to Senior Campaign Officials.

In a phone call Friday afternoon, two senior campaign officials with Hillary Clinton's 2016 Presidential campaign said the former U.S. Secretary of State will run a campaign that is technology driven with an emphasis on “old school organizing”.

“Hillary will work hard to earn every vote in the first in the south primary state,” one campaign official said. “We will quickly build a team that is focused on talking with a diverse group across our state.”

When asked if Clinton would focused her campaign efforts on urban centers or rural towns, the same campaign official said Clinton's campaign would focus on all 46 counties in South Carolina, along with engaging students on college campuses.

Clinton announced her Presidential campaign two weeks ago. Since then, half a dozen campaign organizers are on the ground in the Palmetto state establishing a ground game for the next ten months.

Another senior campaign official, who worked on President Obama's 2012 campaign, said Clinton's 2016 campaign will be a “different kind of campaign.”

The campaign official added  Clinton will campaign in South Carolina in May, but no rallies or press conferences will be scheduled. The campaign said Clinton will focus her energy on talking with everyday voters at coffee shops and businesses.

This weekend, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe will visit South Carolina to campaign on the behalf of Clinton's campaign.
