  • Former Vice President Mike Pence is making another trip to drum up support among abortion opponents in the early-voting state of South Carolina. Pence will give a keynote address at the May fundraising banquet for the Carolina Pregnancy Center. That's according to a copy of an invitation obtained by The Associated Press. The organization has become a regular stop for GOP presidential hopefuls. Last year, Pence chose the fundraiser of another conservative Christian nonprofit in South Carolina as the scene of his first public address since the end of the Trump administration.
  • Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is being feted at The Citadel, where a Republican group is making her the first woman to receive its highest honor. It's the former South Carolina governor's first speech in her home state since departing the Trump administration. On Thursday night, Haley will receive the Nathan Hale Patriot Award, an honor that comes along with a replica Revolutionary War musket. Previous recipients include Donald Trump in 2015, former White House adviser Steve Bannon in 2018 and then-Vice President Mike Pence last year. As Haley ponders her next political steps, the setting is a well-worn stop for politicians seeking exposure in the first-in-the-South presidential primary state.
