A trio of likely 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls -- Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum -- are coming to West Columbia on Saturday.
They will attend the S.C. National Security Action Summit at Brookland Baptist Church Banquet and Conference Center sponsored by Breitbart News, The Center for Security Policy and High Frontier.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton also is speaking at the event.
Topics include "The Threat from Shirah and the Global Jihad Movement," "Border Insecurity and Illegal Immigration," and "The Hollowing Out of America's Military."
"Our President has refused to not only take the steps necessary to defeat this enemy, but he has refused to educate himself on who our enemy is and acknowledge their end goals," Santorum said in a release. "I believe America can and will win this fight, but we must engage now with diplomatic and direct assistance to our allies, provide the necessary intelligence and air support in the Middle East, and ensure Iran never takes further steps to develop a nuclear weapon."
Other GOP White House prospects are coming to South Carolina.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in Greenville on Wednesday.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush heads to events in Greenville and Columbia on March 17 and 18.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker goes on a four-city swing on March 19 and 20.
