Tennessee has kicked off a flurry of visits from potential Republican presidential candidates.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee spoke at the National Religious Broadcasters meeting in Nashville this week, while former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal are scheduled to appear next month.

And former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been signed up as the headliner for the Tennessee Republican Party's annual fundraiser on May 30.

Jindal will keynote the Tennessee GOP's Leadership Series in Memphis on March 20, and Santorum is scheduled to speak at the Montgomery County Republican Party's Lincoln Reagan Day on March 28.

Huckabee won the Republican presidential Tennessee primary in 2008, while Santorum won in 2012.
