Huntsman set to headline GOP fundraiser in SC

Presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman is planning to headline a Republican Party fundraiser in this key early GOP primary state.
The former U.S. ambassador to China and Utah governor on Monday is heading to a Greer barbecue restaurant for a $20-per-plate event for the Greenville and Spartanburg county Republican parties and Upstate Young Republicans.
South Carolina is a prime stop for GOP White House hopefuls because its first-in-the-South primary has a knack for picking the eventual Republican nominee.
Huntsman is the first to stop here since questions about paying for that contest were mostly cleared up by the state's attorney general and the Legislature in overriding a veto of state cash for the contest.
Monday's visit is Huntsman's second to South Carolina since launching his presidential campaign three weeks ago.
