Huckabee, Santorum in SC to help in GOP runoff

June 21, 2014 

— Two potential presidential contenders for 2016 are campaigning in South Carolina to help Republicans seeking the state’s No. 2 post.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is traveling with Mike Campbell on Saturday. Campbell’s campaign says the two are holding “get out the vote” rallies in Greer, Columbia and North Charleston. Campbell was state chairman of Huckabee’s 2008 presidential bid.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum will campaign Monday with Henry McMaster in Greenville and Spartanburg counties. Santorum ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012.

Voters will decide Tuesday whether McMaster or Campbell will be the Republican choice for lieutenant governor.

McMaster took 44 percent of the vote in the four-way primary race June 10. Campbell took 24 percent.

The runoff winner will face Democratic state Rep. Bakari Sellers in November.
