SUMTER — U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn will hold his first town hall in South Carolina since Donald Trump took office as president on Thursday night.

The event is scheduled to run from 6 to 8 p.m. at Black River Electric Cooperative.

Most of South Carolina’s Republican congressmen have drawn the ire of residents who are upset with Trump’s agenda at a series of town halls across the state since the president assumed office in January.

It’s unclear what the reception will be for Clyburn, the state’s only Democratic representative in Washington, D.C.

According to a press release, the town hall will focus on accessible, affordable quality health care; reforming the country’s tax code; infrastructure development; energy costs; and what communities must do to address challenges facing the country.
