Donald Trump, the New York real estate mogul and reality TV star who is weighing a 2016 bid for the GOP presidential nomination, will headline the Horry County Republican Party Convention on April 11, according to an email sent to party supporters.
"We believe his presence will draw a crowd and we look forward to having him," the email said.
Trump visited Myrtle Beach in January for the S.C. Tea Party Convention, where he criticized the Obama administration and potential presidential candidates in a 40-minute speech.
"I've been watching been happening, and it's no good," he told the convention. "I've been looking at whose running, and they're no good. I don't mean as people. It's not going to work. It's certainly not going to take this country to the next level."
