COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The closer it gets to February's presidential primary, the more presidential candidates will roll through South Carolina.

With just about three months to go before the "First In The South" Primary, South Carolina is in each campaign's crosshairs. Marco Rubio and John Kasich each rolled through the Midlands following Tuesday night's GOP debate.

Rubio's visit coincided with his campaign headquarters opening up in Columbia increasing his team's presence in the state before the primary.

Ben Carson spent Friday in the Upstate during a Tim Scott Town Hall session.

Ted Cruz is hitting the Upstate Saturday before traveling to the Lowcountry for meet and greets.

Donald Trump is also making two South Carolina stops in five days. First, Spartanburg on November 20th, and another in Myrtle Beach on the 24th, two regions that have responded particularly will to the real estate mogul.

Campaign stops in South Carolina will be especially important to conservative candidates, whose messages and voter bases overlap. On the Democratic side both Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley will make stops at Allen University in Columbia on November 21st, but they'll actually be joined by Ben Carson as well.

The three candidates trying to make headway among primary voters, taking part in a forum on criminal justice reform.
