The South Carolina primary is two weeks away, and the Democratic race is getting tighter here in the Palmetto State.

An average of polls from RCP has former Vice President Joe Biden leading the field of Democrats with Senator Bernie Sanders and billionaire businessman Tom Steyer rounding out the top three.

Over the next two weeks, the top candidates will be crisscrossing the state.

On Friday, Senator Elizabeth Warren stopped by Bertha's Kitchen in Charleston.

“I have been down here all day long meeting with people, talking with people, 'cause I believe what hangs in the balance is our democracy,” said Warren.

Her once red-hot campaign has now cooled after losing in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Warren is now scaling back TV ads in South Carolina, but said she can still win here .

“My biggest investment is not in TV ads, my biggest investment's in people right here in the ground in South Carolina, added Warren.

Like Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden is coming off back-to-back losses in Iowa and New Hampshire.

“Our polling shows we are still in good shape. I have been coming to South Carolina for over 30 years,” Biden said.

He is banking on breaking through in South Carolina relying on his support from African American voters.

The South Carolina primary is set for Feb. 29, and the top candidates are expected to spend plenty of time in the Palmetto State.

Steyer is holding events in the Lowcountry over the weekend, and the Biden campaign is knocking on doors to get out the vote.
