MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis campaigned Friday in Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet.

The Republican is among several candidates seeking the party’s 2024 presidential nomination.

Dozens of people showed up at separate events on Friday. Desantis was meeting with supporters at Ground Zero in Myrtle Beach in the afternoon. Earlier in the day, he was greeted by supporters for a town hall at the VFW Post 10420 in Murrells Inlet.

DeSantis has spent the past two days on the campaign trail in South Carolina. He was in Anderson and Rock Hill in the Upstate on Thursday.

DeSantis is joined in the GOP race by former President Donald Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, political newcomer Vivek Ramaswamy, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgram.
