Marco hit the ground running in South Carolina on Wednesday, and his barnstorm across the "First in the South" state continued yesterday.
Marco kicked the day off with a huge event in Sun City.

Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes was in attendance, and officially backed Marco today. Here's what the mayor had to say:
After listening to Marco Rubio yesterday, I am convinced he is the right choice to lead our party into the general election. Marco bridges the gap between older voters and the next generation. I've never seen so many 18 year olds from Myrtle Beach High School so fired up about a Republican presidential candidate. Their excitement stems from Marco's talent for communicating our shared conservative principles in a manner that connects with voters on a human level. Terri and I are proud to endorse Marco because he is a strong conservative and the only candidate who can unite Republicans while attracting new voters to our cause.
His final event in Simpsonville? Another packed house for Marco.
