Two GOP candidates were in Columbia Saturday, attending a rally at the State House.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz and former Texas Governor Rick Perry were there to take part in the We Stand With God, Pro-Family.
Both politicians joined U.S. Senator Tim Scott.
A Twitter page for the rally says approximately 10,000 people were on state capitol grounds today.
Pastors from all over the state, and beyond, discussed marriage and religious liberty.
“Who are you gonna boast today? Who are you gonna stand with today? I ask you to stand with America! Stand with liberties! Stand with these biblical values that America has been founded upon. Stand with god,” said Perry.
One candidate made reference to the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood.
“Preach life to the pulpits, preach life to the congregation, and we need to call all our leaders. No show votes, no empty votes. Stand up and lead and defund Planned Parenthood today,” said Governor Cruz.
