GOP candidates in high-stakes chess match in South Carolina
CHARLESTON, S.C. - Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio are locked in a high-stakes political chess match in South Carolina, strategically moving money and other campaign resources around in a bid to pull ahead in the Republican primary race - or at least keep their campaigns afloat if they don't.
The maneuvering comes as some Republican leaders fear Donald Trump or Ted Cruz will begin piling up the delegates needed to secure the nomination before one of the more traditional candidates can coalesce the support of voters turned off by the brash billionaire and fiery Texas senator.
So-called establishment Republicans believe nominating either Trump or Cruz would jeopardize the party's chances of winning in November's general election.
