Texas Gov. Rick Perry to visit SC coast this week

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is planning a visit to South Carolina in the coming days with several stops along the coast.

The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce says it's holding a luncheon on Tuesday with Perry at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach.

The chamber says in a news release that it frequently invites national and statewide political figures to speak to area business leaders.

The Greater Bluffton Republican club says on its website it will have an event with Perry on Wednesday at the Rose Hill Golf Club.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head also reports that he'll be at a lunch Wednesday at the Crazy Crab on Hilton Head Island.

Perry is considered a possible Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential race.
