No Republican candidate for president has won the nomination of the party without winning the South Carolina going back to Ronald Reagan in 1980. With this fact in mind, the candidates attention now turns to South Carolina.  This morning (Friday), Mitt Romney and Governor Haley are at the Peanut warehouse in Conway, SC. Newt Gingrich is planning a visit to Florence on Tuesday at the Art Trail Gallery.  Santorum and Paul are making visits as well.

The main impact that the results in Iowa seem to be having in South Carolina is that it has brought Santorum into the conversation among Republicans in South Carolina. He has visited the state more than Romney and Gringrich and hopes his strong showing in Iowa will be a springboard for him pulling an upset by winning South Carolina.
