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.
