Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich will hold a town hall in North Charleston today, his second time in the state in 10 days.
The Ohio governor will hold the town hall at 4:30 p.m. at Vapor Apparel in North Charleston. He also will hold a town hall in Spartanburg earlier in the day.
The appearance comes a day after state Rep. Jeff Bradley, R-Hilton Head Island, announced his endorsement of the candidate.
“(Kasich’s) ideas for balancing the federal budget, rebuilding our military, and encouraging job creation are exactly what America needs right now,” Bradley said in a press release. “His response to the attacks in Paris only confirmed my belief that he is the right person for the job. He has the national security policy experience and vision to be a strong Commander in Chief and keep our country safe.”
Bradley joins Sen. Ray Cleary, R-Murrells Inlet, and Rep. Gary Clary, R-Clemson, as state co-chairmen of the Kasich campaign’s South Carolina leadership team.
