President Obama will visit South Carolina on Friday, his first visit since entering the White House.

With his visit to Benedict College, a historically black private school in Columbia, S.C., Obama will have visited every state in the nation as president except for South Dakota and Utah -- two solidly conservative states.

The president visited Idaho, one of the remaining states he hadn't traveled to since taking office, right after delivering his State of the Union speech in late January.

Obama will be headlining a youth rally in Columbia, according to White House officials, in the run-up to the speech he will deliver Saturday to mark the 50th anniversary of the march on Selma.

While South Carolina is also a red state, it has a large African American community that backed Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary, where he was facing off against Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The South Carolina Democratic Party celebrated the announcement with a tweet that gave credit to Rep. James E. Clyburn (S.C.), a member of the House Democratic leadership who successfully lobbied for Obama to visit his home state.

"Thanks to @Clyburn who always delivers!!! We will provide more details on @BarackObama visit when they become available!" the tweet read.

When will South Dakota and Utah get a visit from the 44th president? Sometime before January 2017, no doubt.
