The Post and Courier asked S.C. county Democratic Party chairs each to name four candidates who are getting their attention in the 2020 White House run.

Some provided more than four names, while others gave fewer. A number of county chairs declined to offer any choices.

Listings from 30 county party chairs do not represent endorsements. 

Names are listed in the order they were given to reporters. Counties are presented alphabetically by region.
