Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) expressed “amazement” in a NBC News interview that Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker have not had “more of a surge” in his state at this point in the Democratic presidential race.
Of Harris, he offered that she “hasn’t spelled out the policy stuff with her vision” — vision that he praised as “tremendous. Of course, I just thought Kamala because this just seemed to be the year of the black woman. I thought she would be surging a little more than she is.”
About Booker, Clyburn said, “I think he is suffering from the shadows, coming out from under the shadows of Barack Obama.”
