2012: All about South Carolina

BACHMANN: “Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann said Thursday that President Barack Obama has moved too late and with too little force in response to Syria's crackdown on dissent,” the AP reports of Bachmann’s speech in Columbia, South Carolina yesterday. 

The Florence County Republican Party, who hosted Bachmann’s second event of the day, called Bachmann “the cosnervatives’ conservative,” according to Carolina Live.

PERRY: Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be in South Carolina today and tomorrow, stopping at a Florence restaurant and hospital, then going to a $75-per-person luncheon in Columbia to raise money for the South Carolina GOP.
