Ron Paul to visit South Carolina

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/05/04/art.paulhrg0504.gi.jpg caption="Texas Rep. Ron Paul will return to the early primary state next month."]WASHINGTON (CNN) - Will Ron Paul give it another go in 2012?

The Texas congressman and hero of limited government advocates will visit the key early primary state of South Carolina on Nov. 9 to deliver a speech "on the future of individual liberty and the importance of the U.S. Constitution" at the University of South Carolina, student groups said Tuesday. The announcement comes a week after Paul scheduled a visit to Iowa on Nov. 13 to speak to students at Iowa State University.

The onetime Republican presidential hopeful finished in fifth place in last year's South Carolina primary, behind Mitt Romney but ahead of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Other potential 2012 candidates - including Mike Pence, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee - have already visited South Carolina this year or have made plans to do so.

Paul's appearance was organized by the University of South Carolina Honors College, the Carolina Debate Union and Young Americans for Liberty, a student group of Paul supporters.

    I doubt it will happen but I'd be ecstatic to see Dr. Paul give it another go in 2012. One of the only principled public servants in that perversely corrupt town, Washington DC.

    In Liberty,
