Tom Steyer dances on stage in last rally in South Carolina

Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer busted a move at his last rally in South Carolina before Saturday’s primary election, dancing on stage with rapper Juvenile. 


The event was held at the gym of Allen University, a historically black college in Columbia, and also featured Grammy-winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams, BuzzFeed News reports.

Adams sang “America the Beautiful” and then Steyer’s wife and daughter introduced the longshot candidate, who came on stage to give one last pitch to his supporters. Steyer, a billionaire from California, has invested heavily in South Carolina, a state that has a large Black population. 

His hard campaigning in the state has led to in-roads with the important voting bloc; the latest Emerson poll put Steyer in a tie for third place with former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg at 11 percent.

He told the crowd Friday night that he had fallen in love with the Palmetto State, and that he was “never leaving.”

“We’re going to win this fight,” he added.

Then Juvenile, who experienced sound difficulties earlier in the night, came back on stage and performed his song “Back That Azz Up,” to which Steyer danced.
