(NATS SOUND he's electrifying) Super charged fans of Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump saw their hero in action Saturday during a Tea Party Coalition meeting in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Some say the self-funded element of his campaign is amongst his most admirable qualities. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER SAYING: "He is not one of the establishments. He speaks like we the people have been wanting to speak. I love that. And I love that he's self-funded." (SOUNDBITE) (English) DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER SAYING: "Since he's not using campaign contributions, or legal bribes, I like to say, he is not indebted to them and so he is going to be influenced by the people, not donors." (SOUNDBITE) (English) DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER SAYING: "He's not working for anyone directly, he doesn't go to his donors, and I find that really attractive about him." Trump is running neck and neck with Texas Senator Ted Cruz in Iowa where the first nominating contest takes place in two weeks. Democratic presidential nominees will hold a debate in South Carolina later Sunday night.
