South Carolina Tuesday news roundup

Columbia, South Carolina (CNN) — Here's a quick look at what's making news this morning in South Carolina politics:

Today's papers are offering up their reviews of Fred Thompson's South Carolina debut on Monday. Dan Hoover at the Greenville News writes that for some in the Greenville crowd, "Thompson appeared to fill a void in their political hearts." The State has Thompson admitting that while "his speech was short on specifics," it was simply meant to introduce himself to South Carolina voters.

The Charleston Post and Courier picks up on something very important that got lost in the shuffle of yesterday's Thompson-mania: the Tennessee native promised more Johnny Cash in the White House.

And while the Hillary Clinton campaign announced Monday they are signing up senior citizens, the Obama campaign is touting their week-long voter drive that signed up 1,100 young voters in South Carolina.
