FLORENCE, SC (WBTW) – We are two days away from the first in the south GOP primary and presidential hopefuls are making final pushes to gather last minute votes.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush held a town hall meeting at the Pee Dee Farmers Market Thursday morning in Florence.
A crowd of about 100 supporters assembled in front of his tour bus. Bush was accompanied on stage with Senator Lindsey Graham, Congressman Tom Rice and pro fisherman Roland Martin.
This was Bush second time here in Florence in two weeks and his final stop here in the Pee Dee before Saturday’s primary.
“There are people running that are gifted in many ways but they have not had to make tough decisions in their life to help others or to make tough decisions to lead us through adversity. I’ve done that in the state of Florida and that’s my case,” Bush told news13.
In the latest news poll, Bush is in last place at 4 percent behind Ben Carson who is at 6 percent.
