Presidential candidate Jeb Bush to meet with pastors in Charleston

CHARLESTON, SC – Jeb Bush plans to meet with black pastors in Charleston, South Carolina on Monday – part of a rescheduled visit to the state after he cut short an earlier stop because of the church shooting at Emanuel AME.

The Republican presidential candidate was in Charleston as part of his campaign kickoff on the day that nine people were shot to death during a prayer meeting at the church. Bush was staying not far from the scene of the shooting.

Bush then canceled the rest of his visit, which included a town hall meeting focusing on military issues.

His campaign says Monday’s meetings with the ministers will be closed to the media. Bush plans to visit a pharmaceutical company in the Columbia area later Monday.
