EASLEY, S.C. (AP) - Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is starting the new year with several stops in South Carolina.
The Florida senator is traveling Saturday to Pickens County, where he's holding a meet-and-greet at Mutt's BBQ Easley.
Then he heads to Beaufort County, where he will meet with voters at the Hilton Head Island High School gym. The event had been planned for the school's performing arts center but was changed to accommodate more people.
As his final public event of the day, Rubio travels to Lexington. There, he will make a stop at Hudson's Smokehouse BBQ, a regular stop for candidates seeking to win South Carolina's GOP presidential primary.
