GOP presidential hopefuls will be hard to miss around the state this weekend.
Herman Cain is attending a “meet and greet” at the Docksider Bar and Grille in North Myrtle Beach Saturday morning. At noon, he’ll be the guest for 1st District Congressman Tim Scott’s town hall meeting at Daniel Island School in Charleston.
Former Utah governor and recent U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman will try to reach South Carolinians through a popular activity: college football tailgating.
Huntsman will be at Clemson University Saturday morning, then will join Navy tailgaters before their game against USC in Columbia. Before the 6: 00 p.m. kickoff, he’ll meet volunteers at a special campaign tailgate outside of Williams-Brice stadium.
Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum has been in South Carolina this week and will spend Saturday in three counties.
Saturday morning, he will address the Lancaster County Kickoff Election Pep Rally. At 1:00 p.m., Santorum will speak to the Spartanburg County GOP Constitution Day event in Boiling Springs. That evening, he’ll be at the Horry County Constitution Day Evening Prayer Meeting in North Myrtle Beach.
These three candidates are not currently frontrunners in national polls, but all three say the South Carolina primary voters will decide, not polls.
