South Carolina Wednesday news roundup

COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN) - Here's a quick look at what's making political news in South Carolina this morning:

The New York Times follows up on the story CNN first reported that two members of Sen. Barack Obama's South Carolina steering committee tried to keep Stephen Colbert off the Democratic primary ballot. Obama's campaign denies any connection to the phone calls that were made.

Pat Robertson endorsed Rudy Giuliani Wednesday morning. Asked about the endorsement at an event in Columbia today, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney said "you can't get them all" and touted his own endorsements from social conservatives like Bob Jones III and Paul Weyrich.

On a similar note, Sen. Sam Brownback, a favorite of the conservative grassroots, endorsed Sen. John McCain for president. Will Brownback's South Carolina supporters get to work for McCain?

Aaron Gould Sheinin examines Romney's steady climb in South Carolina.
