Welcome back Bobby Jindal. The Louisiana governor and 2016 White House hopeful will headline the S.C. GOP party's annual Silver Elephant dinner on Friday in Columbia. He spoke at Gov. Nikki Haley's re-election kickoff last summer. Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, another guest speaker at Haley's re-election party and another presidential prospect, is coming to the Palmetto State for a third time in a year to a Dorchester GOP barbecue next month featuring the South Carolina's CEO.
