After Steyer spoke, some staffers appeared stunned, others frustrated. Organizer Nicola Hemphill wiped streams of tears from her face as she clung to friends. “South Carolina was a slave state,” Hemphill told CBS News. “This is the first candidate I have ever seen put black people first.

Hemphill described what she believes will become Steyer’s legacy: “Tenacity. Entrepreneurship. He cares about our lives.”
