Two potential presidential contenders for 2016 are campaigning in South Carolina to help Republicans seeking the Lt. Governor nomination.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee flew into the Greenville Spartanburg International Airport on Saturday to stump with Mike Campbell. Huckabee spoke at a "get out the vote" rally at Stevens Aviation's GSP. Huckabee and Campbell will also speak in Columbia and North Charleston. Campbell was state chairman of Huckabee's 2008 presidential bid.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is expected to arrive in the Upstate on Monday to campaign with Henry McMaster in Greenville and Spartanburg counties. Santorum ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012.

Voters will decide during the runoff election Tuesday whether McMaster or Campbell will be the Republican choice for lieutenant governor.

McMaster took 44 percent of the vote in the four-way primary race June 10. Campbell took 24 percent.

The runoff winner will face Democratic state Rep. Bakari Sellers in November.
