On Sunday, six days before South Carolina’s Presidential primary, Ron Paul scored one of the most sought-after endorsements in the State.
South Carolina State Senator Tom Davis endorsed the Texas congressman in Myrtle Beach. Davis is a favorite among Republicans and a highly regarded fiscal conservative who is liked by many Tea Party activists.
The State Senator called former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman “a fine man” and was equally kind to Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry, but he said Paul was the only candidate right for now.
“At the end of the day, when I sat down, I realized there were a lot of good people running for this race,” Davis said. “But there’s only one person, there’s only one person speaking to what I believe is the core problem of our country today. The biggest threat to our liberty comes from debt.”
Paul is currently campaigning in South Carolina where a recent Public Policy poll put him in third place at 15 percent favorability, behind Romney’s 29 percent and Gingrich’s 24 percent.
