      Bachmann address crowd at Florence Civic Center

      GOP Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann speaks to a crowd in Florence.

      Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann wrapped up a rally at the Florence Civic Center just after 5 p.m. Thursday.

      Nearly 350 people came out to hear her speak.

      The Minnesota congresswoman entered the room to a lot of cheers and claps. The Florence rally is a part of a three day swing through South Carolina for Bachmann.

      The Florence County Republican Party hosted the event and called Bachmann "the conservatives' conservative."

      She talked about a number of issues including the national debt, national security, the relevance of the Tea Party and the importance of South Carolina in the Republican Primary for president.

      "South Carolina determines who will be the next president of the United States," she said. "And we intend to be here and make our case and go from county to county from city to city from township to township from every hill to every farm to every person. We're going to make the case that we're the unifying candidate who can beat Obama."

      Bachmann really got the crowd going when she talked about the current administration.

      She says it's time for change in the White House.

      Bachmann told the crowd she believes President Obama will be a one term president.

      Representative Bachmann leaves heads to Myrtle Beach Friday.

      Se'll speak at a town hall meeting at noon at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
