U.S. Sen. Cory Booker held a televised town hall in Orangeburg, South Carolina, Wednesday night.
Booker’s answers to the questions posed voters by in the early-primary state were broadcast live on CNN for roughly an hour.
The visit to South Carolina is Booker’s fourth since he announced his candidacy at the start of February.
Though he made little news during the event, the airtime could serve him well this early into a presidential contest with such a wide field of candidates.
Audience members’ questions stuck largely to some of Booker’s established stances — he has said he favors marijuana legalization, supports the expansion of social security and backs the Green New Deal.
“This resolution of bold vision is what we need. We come from a country that put forth bold visions. Like the president who said ‘we’re going to go to the moon,’” Booker said. “Folks didn’t attack him and say, wait a minute that sounds irresponsible, what kind of rockets —’ no, people leaned in and said ‘I’m inspired by that vision.’”
