COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Rand Paul is now officially a candidate in South Carolina’s presidential primary.

On Tuesday, Paul’s wife, Kelley, stopped by South Carolina’s Republican Party headquarters in Columbia to file her husband’s papers to participate in the GOP nominating contest.

South Carolina is home to the first Republican presidential primary in the South. Nearly all candidates remaining in the race have officially handed in their paperwork and filing fee to participate.

Kelley Paul told The Associated Press that her husband is committed to continuing his campaign and that it’s too early to rely on polling data. She says endorsements like the one from U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney show Rand Paul’s conservative credentials.
