Clyburn's Fish Fry is often a draw for out-of-state presidential hopefuls to come make their case to South Carolina's 'first in the South' Democratic primary voters, with Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan on the stump this year. Ryan challenged House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi in 2016 to lead the minority party in the House; a shift that younger Democratic candidates including Sanford challenger Joe Cunningham have supported, but which could mean change for incumbent leadership members including Clyburn.
