Voters in Indian Land will have a second chance to get up close and personal with a presidential hopeful for the second time this week.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., will speak at Sun City Carolina Lakes on Thursday.

Rubio is scheduled to be on the back lawn of the Lake House, 5074 Grandview Drive, at 11:15 a.m.

Seating is available, but the Sun City Carolina Lakes Republican Club, which is hosting the senator, recommends you bring your own tailgate chairs.

The event is free to the public, but attendees are asked to RSVP ahead of time on the campaign stop’s Eventbrite page.

This will be the first stop by Rubio in the area since he announced his run for the White House earlier this year.

On Monday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker appeared at the same location to make his own pitch for the GOP’s presidential nomination.
