Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to boost SC Republicans

ANDERSON, S.C. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is scheduled to speak at a fundraising barbecue for South Carolina Republicans.

U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan announced Wednesday that the Florida Republican would be the keynote speaker at his fourth annual "Faith and Freedom BBQ" fundraiser in Anderson on August 25.

Rubio says he has not decided whether to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Last year, another potential GOP presidential hopeful, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, spoke at Duncan's fundraiser.

Other previous speakers include Sens. Jim DeMint and Tim Scott and former state Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly.
