Jim Clyburn Hosts Annual “World Famous” Fish Fry
(Columbia, SC) — Jim Clyburn’s World Famous Fish Fry will be held this year on Friday, May 2 at a new location. The event will be held at the Cannon Parking Garage, 1227 Taylor Street which is on the corner of Sumter and Taylor. This year’s event will continue the tradition of music, campaign speeches and a meal of fried whiting, white bread, hot sauce and cold drinks.
“When I began this event in the parking lot of my 1992 campaign headquarters, I never dreamed it would become such a fixture in Democratic campaigns,” Jim Clyburn said. “This is an extraordinary evening of friendship and fellowship that has attracted Presidential candidates, the Vice President of the United States, national media and thousands of die-hard Democrats over the years. I hope our specials guests this year, Senator Tim Kaine and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, will appreciate the momentum this event will bring to the 2014 election cycle.”
This annual event began before Jim Clyburn was elected to Congress as a thank you to dedicated Democrats. It is now held every year on the night of the South Carolina Jefferson-Jackson Dinner and is a regular campaign stop for Democratic candidates running for national, state and local offices.
Columnist Roger Simon has called Clyburn’s fish fry, “one of those all-too-rare, feel-good evenings in politics.”.”This year should be no exception.
