NETWORK TO AIR “FIRST IN THE SOUTH” EVENTS IN GREENVILLE AND COLUMBIA
CNN will host a pair of “First in the South” presidential primary town halls this week … events the network said it organized at the “last minute.”
The first town hall will be held in Greenville, S.C. and will feature retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. The second event will be held in Columbia, S.C. and will feature the other three candidates currently in the race – former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Ohio governor John Kasich and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
The Greenville town hall will be held this Wednesday evening beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST. The Columbia town hall will be held this Thursday evening on the campus of the University of South Carolina beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST.
The latest polls show Trump enjoying a big lead over the field … and Carson’s campaign on life support. The rest of the race – as it was in early-voting New Hampshire a week ago – appears to be totally up for grabs.
