The recent parade of 2016 presidential hopefuls continues in South Carolina with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz visiting Columbia later this month.
Cruz will speak at a lunch fundraiser for the S.C. Republican party on Sept. 15 at Seawell's near the S.C. State Fairgrounds.
Tickets cost $40 for the lunch. For $100, guests also can get a photo with the senator. Being part of the host committee costs $250.
Cruz last visited South Carolina in April at an event at The Citadel. Last year, he spoke at a gathering of pastors and headlined the state party's Silver Elephant dinner.
Never miss a local story.
