BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WTOC) - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren was in the Lowcountry Monday for part of her 2020 presidential campaign.

“Her passion and also the way she spoke. She’s very well spoken. See explains things very well. I just thought she was great," said Claire Glasson, Beaufort County.

Before coming to Beaufort, Warren made a stop in Charleston where she was endorsed by the mayor of Awendaw.
