In hard-bitten rural South Carolina, many minds made up for Clinton

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton rallies with supporters at a local politician's annual oyster roast and fish fry in Orangeburg, South CarolinaBy Amanda Becker DENMARK, South Carolina (Reuters) – Betty Odom-Bell, a 47-year-old entrepreneur, took a financial risk last year when she opened a restaurant in Denmark, a small town in the middle of a deeply depressed part of rural South Carolina. "It’s almost like we’re a forgotten town," she said, describing her surprise at Clinton's visit to the town of 3,500. Clinton is poised to win big over the U.S. senator from Vermont in South Carolina's primary contest on Saturday, in part because of her outsized support among the state's rural black poor – a bloc that Sanders has struggled to impress.
