Days out from the South Carolina primary, Republicans from more than a dozen southern states are descending on the Palmetto State to meet, network and continue vetting the GOP presidential candidates.

More than 2,000 Republicans from all over the south are already in Charleston for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference.

Ruth Ulich, the chair of the conference, says South Carolina voters will have a more conservative perspective in mind when they head to the polls, differing from Iowa and New Hampshire voters.

“Southern voters tend to be very conservative, so I believe that is what you will see play out,” she said. “I believe there are three legs of being a complete conservative, whether it’s a strong national security, whether it’s the debt and the money problems, or whether it’s social issues—those are the three things that come together that make a complete conservative.”

The conference runs from Thursday until Saturday, just in time for election watch parties.
