ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) -

This First in the South Democratic primary is Saturday and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has made several stops across the Lowcountry. On Friday she hosted a "Get Out the Vote" rally at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg. 

"Hello South Carolina State," said Clinton with open arms as she took the stage to address a room full of young voters.

Secretary Clinton says running for presidency a second time has brought personal growth.

"My experience as Secretary of State equips me to be the commander in chief," says Clinton.

She has a message for those who say they aren't ready to see a woman in the position.

"I'm not asking anyone to vote for me because I'm a woman," says Clinton. "I think being a woman however is one of the attributes I would bring to the job." 

She says she'll fight for things like equal pay for equal wok and she says she's working to win everyone's vote.

"I'm going to do everything I can to break down every barrier I can that stands in the way of every South Carolinian, having the opportunity to live up to his or her God-given potential," says Clinton.

 Clinton talked about how she deals with criticism and protesters, like some that came out to the rally.

"I understand why people have strong feelings, I try to take criticism seriously but not personally," says Clinton. "If there's something to be learned you should definitely learn it, but you should also recognize that you've got to get up every day," says Clinton.

Congressman Jim Clyburn who recently endorsed Clinton says his heart has been with her since day one. Other celebrities like K. Michelle and Star Jones also came out to push voters to the ballot box.

"I care a lot about what happens in South Carolina, particularly for children and young people in the state," says Clinton. "I will not forget you I will be a President that gets up everyday and tries to make a real difference in your life."

Clinton with be in Columbia Saturday for her Primary Night event at the University of South Carolina.
