Another 2016 White House hopeful is coming to South Carolina to aid a GOP candidate for lieutenant governor.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will stump for Columbia businessman Mike Campbell on Saturday, his campaign said. He will make stops at airports in the Greenville-Spartanburg region, Columbia and Charleston area. (Schedule below)

Huckabee endorsed the son of the late Gov. Carroll Campbell during an Upstate stop in May before Huckabee visited with pastors in Greenville as part of his presidential bid exploration. Mike Campbell headed Huckabee's 2008 GOP presidential bid when Huckabee finished second to U.S. Sen. John McCain in the Palmetto State.

Campbell's opponent in Tuesday's Republican runoff for lieutenant governor, former S.C. Attorney General Henry McMaster, will have former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, another presidential prospect, campaigning for him across the state on Monday. Santorum spoke to Charleston Republican groups in April.

The winner of the GOP lieutenant governor runoff faces Democrat State Rep. Bakari Sellers in November.
