Thompson plans four area stops

Presidential hopeful Fred Thompson, the former Tennessee senator staking his bid for the White House on a strong showing in South Carolina's Jan. 21 Republican primary, has four stops planned in Horry County on his statewide bus tour.

At 2:15 p.m. today, Thompson will park at the corner of Third Avenue and Elm Street in Conway and walk the downtown, said spokesman Joshua Gross.

At 4:30 p.m., Thompson will be in North Myrtle Beach at the Fuddrucker's restaurant, 10435 N Kings Highway.

After Thursday night's Republican debate, Thompson will make two more local stops before getting out on the road. At 10 a.m. Friday, he'll be at Surfside Jenny's, 1013 Glenns Bay Road, Surfside Beach. He'll meet and greet folks along Front Street in Georgetown later in the day. Details of the time and location are pending.
