Thompson to Visit South Carolina In Late June

This is his first stop onthe campaign trail - a key state in the early primaries.

Former Sen. Fred Thompson will make his first visit to South Carolina since creating a "testing-the-waters" committee on June 27, when he'll keynote a fundraising luncheon for the state party.

"We're ecstatic that Sen. Thompson is coming to help the party," said a buoyant Katon Dawson, chairman of the South Carolina GOP.

The event will be two-tiered, with a "roundtable discussion" preceding the luncheon. Tickets for the VIP event will go for $1,000 per-person. The main event will cost $50 per person.

The event, to take place at a hotel in Columbia, will draw hundreds of activists, Dawson predicted. He said Republicans throughout the state have been asking him just when they'll get a glimpse at who is expected to be the next entrant into the presidential race.
