COLUMBIA — A week of visits by presidential hopefuls is coming to an end, but there’s still one more candidate who will swing by the Palmetto State today.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who officially announced he is seeking the Republican nomination on Tuesday, will participate in a jobs discussion at 11 a.m., in Summerville, at Scout Boats, 2531 Highway 78 West.
Kasich is expected to be the last major Republican to join those seeking the party’s presidential nomination. Unfortunately for Kasich, his Tuesday announcement was overshadowed by a feud between Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham. Yet, Kasich told CNN on Thursday he will have no problem “standing out” from the cluttered GOP field.
