The Beaufort County Democratic Party and U.S. Rep. James Clyburn held a “Get Out The Vote” kickoff rally and “Drive-By Fish Fry” Saturday, Oct. 3, at Whale Branch Middle School in Seabrook.

While the congressman was not personally on hand for the event, the fish fry was one of four Rep. Clyburn was sponsoring in his district over the weekend.

Local candidates greeted cars and SUVs, as drivers lined up for information on voting and of course, a basket of tasty fried fish.

Volunteers were planning to fry more than 90 pounds of fish for about 200 people and it was “going fast,” said Beaufort County Democratic Party Chair Mayra Rivera-Vazquez.
