Tom took his bus tour to the Carolinas over MLK Weekend

The tour gave Tom the opportunity to show Carolinians that he is the best Democrat to beat Donald Trump on the economy and win in November.

Tom started in North Carolina, making stops in Charlotte, and continued his tour in South Carolina by spending the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend in Hartsville, Florence, Effingham, and Columbia.

Over the course of this bus tour, Tom outlined how we can build an economy that works for all Americans, and pursue economic and environmental justice by addressing and undoing the purposeful exclusion of communities of color. The tour gave Tom the opportunity to continue to listen, learn, and show Carolinians that his economic expertise, commitment to justice, and ability to build an inclusive, winning coalition of Americans, makes him the best Democrat to beat Donald Trump on the economy and win in November.

The stops and events of the People Over Profits bus tour across the Carolinas were the following:

Friday, January 17: Charlotte, NC

Tom joined a Hispanic Leadership Roundtable, where he discussed his recently announced immigration plan and his years of experience working with Latinos across the country. Tom also hosted a town hall in Charlotte to officially kick off his tour across the Carolinas.

Tom will put people in the driver’s seat again. Tom founded his small investment firm and grew it into a $36 billion international company. Over that time he became intimately familiar with our economy. Not only does Tom have the business background and experience to take on Donald Trump on the economy, but he also understands that capitalism can offer numerous benefits — freedom of choice, competition, innovation, and sustained economic growth. After a stop at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Parade in Charlotte, NC, Tom hosted a town hall to discuss economic empowerment.

Sunday, January 19: Effingham and Florence, SC

Tom’s belief in God is about protecting human beings, that a society is as good as it treats its most vulnerable citizens, and it’s also about preserving God’s work, the Earth. Tom shared his Faith and Christian values at the Savannah Grove Church Service.

 Monday, January 20: Columbia, SC

Tom began the MLK Day in South Carolina with breakfast alongside inspiring leaders including recent endorsers Sen. John Scott, Rep. Jerry Govan, and Black Caucus Chair Johnnie Cordero. Tom has been highly influenced by their commitment to racial justice.
