COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is serving as the keynote speaker at an annual fundraiser for the South Carolina Republican Party.

The Republican from Texas is featured at this year’s Silver Elephant dinner on Friday in Columbia.

Organizers say this year’s event includes a tribute to former Sen. Jim DeMint. The South Carolina Republican stepped down earlier this year to head up the Heritage Foundation.

The Silver Elephant dinner has served as a showcase in this early presidential primary state for notable Republicans from around the country. In the past two years, speakers have included Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Pennsylvania senator and GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum.
