AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WFXG) -

There’s been a change of location for the campaign rally for Senator Ted Cruz on Monday, February 15, 2016. He was originally scheduled to speak at the Etherredge Center. The appearance has been moved to the USC Aiken Convocation Center at 375 Robert M Bell Parkway in Aiken. We're told the change is due to the huge demand for tickets. The Texas Senator will be joined by television personality, radio host, and author Glenn Beck. The rally will start at 11 a.m.

Donald Trump has added a North Augusta stop to his busy schedule. The Donald will hold a campaign rally on Tuesday at the Riverview Park Activity Center. That’s at 100 Riverview Park Drive in North Augusta. The rally begins at 2 p.m.

Jeb Bush and Ben Carson are both participating in the 2016 “Last Word in the South” Presidential Forum on Tuesday, February 16. The Aiken GOP says all Republican candidates have been invited to give a speech and answer questions from a panel of moderators. It remains to be seen if additional candidates will join Bush and Carson.

The “Last Word in the South” Forum will take place at the USC Aiken Convocation Center at 375 Robert M Bell Parkway in Aiken. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The event gets underway at 7 p.m. You can purchase tickets through Aiken GOP on EventBrite.com. Active military, police officers, fire fighters, and other first responders with a proper ID will be given a free ticket at the door.
