For those following the schedule on the marquee, the S.C. House has a one-day special session Wednesday followed by an appearance at a state GOP fundraiser by Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
The House will consider whether to overturn two bills vetoed by Gov. Nikki Haley. The bills have a small number of supporters: one allows librarians to kick out unruly patrons and police to charge them with a crime, and another allows for a property tax increase in Murrells Inlet.
Perry leaves a bitter political battle at home, where he has been indicted for abusing his office. The charges allege that Perry misused his office by improperly threatening to and then withholding state funds for a program run by a county prosecutor unless she resigned, according to a CNN report.
It hasn't slowed the governor down, who is flirting with a second presidential bid.
"We are happy to welcome Gov. Rick Perry back to South Carolina," said SCGOP Chairman Matt Moore in a statement. "Our grassroots activists and party leaders stand strongly behind Gov. Perry - and they've made it clear with their overwhelming response to this event. It's going to be a packed house."
Perry hasn't yet said whether he'll run again for president, but an early, public visit to South Carolina, which hosts the first southern primary, is always a good sign on which way a candidate is leaning.
