South Carolina Thursday news roundup

COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN) – Here's a quick look at what's making news today in South Carolina politics:

In case you missed it, Hillary Clinton is coming to the Palmetto State to speak to the Charleston County NAACP on Saturday evening.

And Mike Huckabee will campaign in the state on Sept. 19 and 20.

South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, who is endorsing Mitt Romney for president, has signed up with an advocacy group founded by Newt Gingrich called American Solutions. The Web site of American Solutions features a statement from Gingrich that says: "Whether or not I might be a candidate for President is something we will address in September 2007."

Speaking of Romney, WIS-TV's star weatherman Brooks Garner recently got Romney to do a little weather himself.
