GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - As the 2016 presidential jockeying heats up, Republicans Jeb Bush and Scott Walker are making their first extended campaign trips to South Carolina this year.

The two men have back-to-back campaign swings with public and private sessions with GOP donors and activists.

Bush is the featured guest Tuesday at a Greenville breakfast sponsored by upstate business groups. The former Florida governor will be in Columbia Tuesday evening for a reception with Republican legislators.

Bush also plans to visit Myrtle Beach and Charleston, before Walker begins a similar whirlwind.

The Wisconsin governor is seen as one of Bush's top rivals in early primary maneuvering.

Walker will headline state Republican Party fundraisers on Thursday in Columbia and Greenville. On Friday, he's scheduled to be in Rock Hill and Charleston.
