Biden Makes Unusual Move to Woo Important Voting Block

Via The Washington Examiner:

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign announced Thursday it hired a faith outreach director for South Carolina.

 Michael McClain, a longtime pastor of Liberty Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Catawba, South Carolina, has also directed outreach for the National Religious Partnership for the Environment, an alliance of religious organizations committed to environmental stewardship.

As faith outreach director, McClain will develop and oversee relationships between the campaign and religious communities, which in the state are primarily Christian congregations headed by a pastor.

McClain took over the position earlier this month and has been visiting religious communities across the state. He believes Biden’s Catholicism meshes well with the Christian faith of many African Americans in the state, who are a crucial voting bloc in the early primary state.
