Greenville, South Carolina (CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will make a campaign stop in South Carolina before participating in Monday's CNN-Tea Party debate in Florida, according regional press secretary Ryan Williams.
On Monday, Sept. 12th, CNN will broadcast the "Tea Party Republican Debate," live from Tampa, Florida at 8 p.m. ET. Follow all the issues and campaign news leading up to the debate on CNNPolitics.com and @cnnpolitics on Twitter.
He will deliver a policy speech on labor relations after touring Boeing's North Charleston plant, which is at the center of a dispute with the National Labor Relations Board over moving production from its union-represented plant in Washington state to the new plant in South Carolina, a right-to-work state where workers have a choice in joining a union.
The former governor of Massachusetts appeared at a presidential forum in Columbia organized by Sen. Jim DeMint last week, which was his first visit to the pivotal early primary state since May 21.
Romney has spent little time so far in South Carolina compared to his first bid for the White House in 2008, spending millions of dollars here only to finish fourth in the primary.
David Raad, the candidate's senior adviser in the state said, "This is one of many trips the governor is going to make to the state of South Carolina."
"As the campaign progresses you'll see the operation unfold, the engagement continue to unfold and you'll see the governor here substantially," said Raad.
Last week, Romney secured a high-profile tea party endorsement from South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis Loftis, who will serve as state chairman for Romney's campaign.
