CHARLESTON, S. C. - Governor Bobby Jindal's presidential campaign moved on from his debate performance this week to South Carolina.

Jindal qualified as a candidate for the state's primary Friday, filing paperwork to appear on the Feb. 20 ballot.

The Louisiana governor is still polling at the bottom of the GOP field, with one percent or less in most recent polls. That position hasn't changed after his appearance in the smaller of two televised CNN debates this week.

Qualifying for the South Carolina primary costs $44,000. Only one high-profile Republican presidential candidate, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, has dropped out of the race so far.
