Clyburn schedules meeting with SC reporters

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's only congressional Democrat has scheduled a meeting with members of the media.

U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn is slated to hold media roundtable on Tuesday with reporters at his office in Columbia.

Clyburn regularly holds sessions to discuss topics of the day with South Carolina reporters. On Tuesday, his office says Clyburn is planning to talk about his opposition to Republican legislative efforts that could potentially shut down the federal government and slash food stamp benefits.

Reporters are also encouraged to ask about other issues of interest in South Carolina.
