South Carolina Wednesday news roundup

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

Fred Thompson continues his two day campaign swing through the state, making meet & greet stops at Garren's Restaurant in Pickens, Grady's Great Outdoors and Mama Penn's Restaurant in Anderson and Flight Deck Restaurant in Lexington.

Thompson wasn't about to stop anybody from eating the fried chicken at Wade's in Spartanburg on Tuesday.

Dan Hoover wraps up Thompson's campaign stops yesterday.

John Edwards will return to South Carolina tomorrow, visiting his hometown of Seneca. He will open a new Oconee County Democratic Headquarters and speak at Walhalla High School.

Mike Huckabee gets to work! His campaign just announced a rigorous three-day campaign swing through North and South Carolina starting Thursday, making 12 separate campaign stops in Greensboro, Charlotte, Bluffton, North Charleston, North Myrtle Beach, Columbia, Greenville and then back across the state line into Asheville.

After Hillary Clinton released a (debatable) list of African-American endorsers last week, the Obama campaign released their own list of 130 minister endorsements.

    So, Obama attempted to beat Hillary in the minister numbers one week later. So what? Should Hillary try again this week to gather more than 130 black ministers?

    The bottom line is that Hillary (a white candidate) gets more black supports than Obama (a black candidate)in south carolina. That is a shame to obama, who always claims his blackness.

    BTW, I heard that oprah will endorse a new book in the upcoming south carolina rally: "Obama – A million little pieces (if the republican attacks)".
