Clinton signs up South Carolina seniors

Hillary Clinton leads the polls among Democratic primary voters in South Carolina.

COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN) — Hillary Clinton's campaign has created a "South Carolina Seniors for Hillary Steering Committee."

According a release from the campaign, the committee is made up of South Carolina seniors who are drawn to "Hillary's vision of protecting Social Security and cracking down on predatory lending in the long-term care market."

"The beginning of the South Carolina Seniors for Hillary Committee is important for both the committee's advisory role on key issues and in terms of the committee's work to energize Palmetto State seniors for Hillary," said Clinton spokesman Zac Wright.

A survey conducted by the AARP in South Carolina earlier this summer showed that, among seniors, nearly thirty percent of Democrats remain undecided about who they will vote for in the January primary.
