“Every day is a great day in South Carolina,” Haley opens in the upbeat 41-second spot entitled “Make Presidents.” “If we elect Marco Rubio, every day will be a great day in America.”

“All across America, we’ve been waiting on this day, when South Carolina voters go and determine the next Republican nominee, so that we can get this country right back on the right track,” Scott says over images of Rubio meeting with South Carolinians.

Rubio concludes in the ad that South Carolina has a chance to start the process of making him the next president.

“If you make me the president of the United States, and you have a chance to begin that process here on Saturday in South Carolina, we are going to re-embrace the principles that made us special, and we are going to reapply them to the unique challenges of the 21st century,” he says.
