GREENVILLE, S.C. — Many of the Republican presidential candidates descended Friday on Greenville ahead of Saturday’s CBS debate.
But only one was savvy enough to get himself enlisted as the opening act of a throbbing, trembling Christian rock concert that packed 14,000 evangelicals into a downtown arena on Friday night.

“Welcome to Winter Jam — and to God be the glory,” the Texas senator said.
Winter Jam is a touring, four-hour show featuring born-again Christian rock and rap artists. It performed at Greenville’s Bon Secours Wellness Arena on Friday night.
