Romney to visit S.C. in September

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney will campaign in South Carolina sometime in September, said a Romney spokeswoman Thursday.
Romney’s absence from South Carolina, which will hold the First-in-the-South primary in February, has some wondering if the former Massachusetts governor plans to seriously campaign in the state. Romney turned down an offer to participate in U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint's presidential forum on Labor Day, citing a previously scheduled visit to New Hampshire, another early primary state.
In Romney's 2008 presidential run, he was endorsed by DeMint, a Greenville Republican. Despite the endorsement and spending millions in the Palmetto State, Romney finished fourth place in the state's GOP primary. -- Gina Smith
