At least two declared Republican presidential candidates are scheduled to join a candidate forum in Greenville next month.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who announced last week that he’s seeking the GOP nomination for president, will speak at the South Carolina Freedom Summit at the Peace Center on May 9, organizers said.
Another Republican who has officially declared a run for the White House, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, was previously announced as a summit speaker.
The third Republican to have announced a presidential campaign, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, is not listed as a speaker so far.
Sergio Gor, communications director for Paul’s campaign, said the senator’s attendance is to be decided.
Other Republicans who may run for president are also speaking at the summit, according to Citizens United, a conservative activist group organizing the event in conjunction with U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan of Laurens.
