South Carolina Monday news roundup

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

Former President Bill Clinton, the Clinton campaign's favorite surrogate in South Carolina, campaigns in Sumter and Orangeburg today. He will speak at the Sumter County Exhibition Center at 11:45 a.m. and at Orangeburg Calhoun Technical College at 2:30 p.m.

Mitt Romney is out with a new mailer blasting Mike Huckabee's tax record. It's Romney second contrast mail piece in one week.

Sen. John McCain is up with a new radio ad in the state today.

McCain told supporters near Charleston over the weekend that "we've got to win the coast." He was also questioned about his faith in the Upstate on Saturday.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution takes a big picture look at the South Carolina primary (no, its not by Aaron Sheinin).

State Sen. Glenn McConnell has filed a bill to require all government services to be conducted in English only.
