The current field of candidates made Friday’s deadline to file to run in South Carolina’s GOP presidential primary.
Newt and Callista Gingrich this weekend appeared at two Tea Party functions this weekend — one in Florence and one in Myrtle Beach.
Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann is still trying to connect with a tea party base. Her husband Marcus was in the state this weekend to file for the primary and to try to build up the campaign here.
