Danyelle America, a former South Sider, was outside the William-Brice stadium in Columbia, S.C. talking to people about voter registration on Sunday. She estimates that about 700 people got help with address changes and other administrative glitches that could keep them from voting in the primary.
"There are some of the biggest churches here, and the pastors are supporting Hillary," said America. "They ought to be ashamed of themselves. Half of the people in the churches are poor and lower class. You got people walking around here who aren't just poor, they are starving," she said.
I'm supporting Obama because I believe he can make a difference," America told me. "I try to plant a seed everywhere I go, but I'm here because I choose to be. If things get too hard, I'm leaving. "
Cheryl Woodhouse is also a native of Chicago. A graduate of Hirsch High School, she joined the Army when she graduated in 1979. After retiring in 2005, she settled in Columbia. She's been involved with the Obama campaign for about a year.
"I still work for the government and you know for me to take off from work, being here has to be worth it," Woodhouse said.
