CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Jeb Bush is beginning a campaign swing through South Carolina by meeting with veterans.

On Monday, the former Florida governor is in Charleston for a meet and greet with veterans who support his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. The campaign says attendees include Medal of Honor recipient Kyle Carpenter and former Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi.

The meeting is closed to press, but his campaign says Bush will hold a media available following the event at the Hilton Garden Inn in Charleston.

Later Monday, Bush is going to Columbia, where he will participate in a town hall meeting with veterans and members of the military. The event at Seawell’s Catering at the state fairgrounds is hosted by Concerned Veterans for America and is open to the media.
