Following the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire Primary, the Republican party will hold the South Carolina Primary for the remaining field of six. The Palmetto State is the final stop before Nevada, and the campaigns are hoping for enough momentum to still be in-play heading into March 1’s Super Tuesday contests.
Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, and John Kasich are all that remains from the field that for months was double-digit in size. The storylines out of South Carolina for the GOP side have been fast, bizarre, and even steeped in controversy. Frontrunner Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz are hoping to repeat some of their successes from the first two states, while candidates like Bush and Carson need some sign of vitality to continue to be contenders much beyond Saturday.
