Although she has yet to commit to running in the next election, the crowd greeted her with chants of "the next president!" 

Harris spoke alongside several Democrats up for statewide elections and urged voters to help elect them into office.


"This is an election that is probably one of the most significant of our lifetimes," she told the crowd.

"There is so much at stake. I don't have to tell you, you watched the [Supreme Court Justice Brett] Kavanaugh hearings, you know there is so much at stake, because elections matter. Who holds those offices matters. You have heard from these incredible candidates ... who holds these offices matters."

Harris is also set to stump for candidates in Columbia and may schedule other events while in South Carolina.

The state holds particular importance if presidential speculation about Harris comes true, as South Carolina is an early-voting state and the first Southern state to hold a presidential primary.
