Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in Beaufort for meet and greet

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is officially on the ballot for South Carolina's GOP Presidential Primary.

The governor filed for candidacy in the state Friday, after giving a foreign policy speech in the morning at The Citadel in Charleston before making his way to Blackstone's Café in Beaufort, for a meet and greet.

Walker said he plans on spending a lot of time in South Carolina in the upcoming months.

"This is the second time this week we've been here in South Carolina, the third day we've been here. It's always great to be back here in South Carolina. We think it's an incredibly important state, obviously we're going to be here a lot. First in the South primary,” said Governor Walker.

Walker first announced his candidacy to run for president last month. He's one of 17 candidates vying for the Republican Party's nomination.
