GOP FRONTRUNNER MAKES FIRST PALMETTO STATE SWING AS 2016 CANDIDATE

|| By FITSNEWS || Wisconsin governor Scott Walker will travel to Mauldin, S.C. for a meet and greet next week – part of his first visit to the early-voting Palmetto State as an announced presidential candidate.

Walker – who formally kicks of his 2016 presidential bid next Monday – will meet supporters at Mutt’s Barbecue (214 East Butler Road) in Mauldin next Wednesday, July 15 beginning at 1:45 p.m. EDT.

Walker’s Palmetto State swing next Wednesday will also include a coffee and doughnuts event at 7:30 a.m. EDT at the Lowcountry Harley-Davidson (4707 Dorchester Road) in North Charleston, S.C.

He’ll also stop by Hudson’s Smokehouse (4952 Sunset Boulevard) – one of our founding editor’s favorite barbecue joints – in Lexington, S.C. at 10:45 a.m. EDT.

Along with former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Walker is one of the early favorites to win the “First in the South” presidential primary – and many Palmetto politicos believe he has the inside track on getting an endorsement from the state’s “Republican” governor, Nikki Haley.

Walker built his national profile by battling Big Labor – which is likely to play very well in South Carolina.

Yet to be determined?  Whether he’s a consistent pro-free market, pro-liberty GOP candidate … or just another status quo hack.

Guess we’ll find out soon …
