The Aiken County Democratic Party hosted actor and activist Danny Glover on Thursday, June 13.

The "Lunch with Danny Glover" event was held on the campus of Lloyd Kennedy Charter School and Aiken Performing Arts Academy. 

Glover campaigned for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is seeking the presidency as a Democrat – again. Glover took questions from the audience and reporters.

The free event was among the first few serious 2020 splashes in Aiken County.

Glover, in a sweeping question-and-answer session at the luncheon, laid bare his support for the independent Vermont senator, who he has publicly supported for years.
