Hillary Clinton to complete early state swing in late May

Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton will visit South Carolina on May 27, according to two campaign aides, completing trips to the four early presidential primary states.

Clinton's campaign aides would not detail locations the former Secretary of State will visit, but her other trips to early states have included stops at community colleges, high schools and small businesses.
"It will be the first of many conversations with South Carolinians about making sure the economy works for everyday Americans" the campaign said in a release, nothing that - as they have said before - Clinton will "take nothing for granted" this time around.
Since announcing in April, Clinton has spent three days in Iowa, two days in New Hampshire and a day in Nevada. Together with South Carolina, the four states make up the earliest primary and caucus states in the presidential nominating process.
    After visiting the four states during what the campaign is calling their "ramp up" phase, Clinton will hold her first large rally to outline her campaigns platform, her aides have said.
    Clinton has had campaign staff on the ground in South Carolina since she announced her candidacy last month.
    Clay Middleton, a Democratic operative with deep ties to the state, is leading Clinton's Palmetto State operation, while Stephanie Formas, a former staffer for Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, is handing the campaign's communications. Jalisa Washington, a former staffer at the statehouse, serves as the campaign's political director and Carl Walz, a former Southern field director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, will lead the campaign's state field operations.
    Other 2016 Democratic hopefuls visited the state in late April for a round of speeches and a convention. Clinton did not attend in person, instead sending along a video message.
    The Palmetto State was the scene of a significant Clinton defeat during the 2008 nomination fight. Then-Sen. Barack Obama claimed a victory on primary night when he won 55% of the vote. Clinton finished with 27%.
