I’ve been a little lax on the Hillary news with all the attention this week on the Republican Primary. Yesterday, the campaign announced more than 20 women leaders in the state were backing Hillary. Here’s the Lowcountry women who came out in support of Clinton yesterday:

Charleston County Democratic Women President Jacquetta P. Jones

City Council Member Deborah Morinelli of Charleston

Wife of former Judge Alex Sanders and Activist Zoe Sanders of Charleston

Publisher of SKIRT! Magazine Nikki Hardin of Mt. Pleasant

Artist Susan Romaine of Charleston

Community Activist Jennet Robinson Alterman of Charleston

The news today is the endorsement of former Congressman Butler Derrick.

“Senator Clinton has been working for the American people for over three decades. She has worked diligently to ensure healthcare and better opportunities for people across the nation,” said Derrick. “She is well respected around the world and is the candidate best experienced to effectively start working for change from day one. I served South Carolina and the Third Congressional district for 20 years and I know Senator Clinton is the best candidate to stand for our state and stand for our country.”
