MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is visiting Alabama.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill announced that the former Arkansas governor will stop at the Alabama Republican Party headquarters in Birmingham on Thursday.

Huckabee will present his petition and filing fee to Republican Chairwoman Terry Lathan to appear on the Alabama ballot.

At least eight presidential candidates have visited Alabama ahead of next year’s March 1 southeastern regional primary. Southern states have banded together in the so-called “SEC Primary” to try to draw more interest from presidential contenders.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich held a rally in Mobile Tuesday evening.
