While more than a dozen potential 2016 presidential wannabes are considering runs for the White House, so far only one — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz — has officially entered the race.
Cruz will tour the Upstate and Midlands during a two-day campaign trek next week. The Republican will start with a York County GOP town hall in Rock Hill on April 3, according to a schedule released by his campaign.
Later that afternoon, he’ll appear at The Beacon Drive-In in Spartanburg for a town hall at 4:15 p.m., then travel to Greenville for a 7 p.m. reception at The Poinsett Club with a Republican women’s group.
On Saturday, Cruz will appear in Aiken on April 4.
Details of the visit were first reported by the Greenville News.
Cruz was the first candidate of either party to officially enter the race. The pastor’s son made the announcement in an appearance at the Baptist-affiliated school Liberty University in Virginia.
His wife and two daughters will be with him on Friday, according to his campaign.
