Texas Gov. Rick Perry has added more stops to his South Carolina visit next week, turning it into a campaign-style swing through the key Republican primary state, CNN reported Tuesday.
Perry, a Republican who's made his interest in a possible second presidential bid
no secret, will barnstorm with four appearances in the most conservative region of the state.
His keynote speech
to the South Carolina Republican Party in Spartanburg on Tuesday had already been announced.
CNN reported he'll also address the Rotary Club of Downtown Spartanburg earlier Tuesday, where many in the business community supported him during his failed 2012 presidential bid.
On Wednesday, Perry will be the keynote speaker at the Electric Co-Ops of South Carolina annual meeting in Greenville. He'll also address a fundraiser for a local Boy Scouts of America chapter there, CNN reported.
Perry, a former Boy Scout, opposed the group's decision earlier this year to admit openly gay Scouts
Next week's stump will be Perry's second visit this year to the first-in-the-South primary state.
In August, he attended Gov. Nikki Haley's re-election announcement and had a private dinner with Haley and a small group of advisers at a Greenville steakhouse later that evening, CNN reported, citing two unnamed GOP sources.
Earlier this month, Perry made a two-day swing through Iowa
, the state that kicks off the presidential caucus and primary calendar.
