Mike Huckabee is slated to appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, DC tonight, making a cameo at a 3-hour Q&A with his daughter, Sarah Huckabee, who will manage the Senate campaign of Rep. John Boozman (R-AR)--but first he'll make a stop in South Carolina.

It's his first visit to SC in 2010; he'll headline a fundraising luncheon for state Rep. Rex Rice. South Carolina is a key primary state for Republicans, and Huckabee put up a strong showing there in 2008, coming in second to John McCain (33%) with 30% of the vote.
