The Latest: And then there were 6; GOP 2016 field narrows

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- The Latest on the 2016 presidential race, with the focus turning to South Carolina and the Republican debate on Saturday night (all times local):

8:35 a.m.

And then there were six.

The 2016 presidential field is shrinking on the Republican side, and those still in the race are preparing for Saturday night's debate in Greenville, South Carolina.

The latest contender to drop out is Jim Gilmore, a former Virginia governor.

After opening contests in Iowa and New Hampshire, the campaign is heading south for South Carolina's primary on Feb. 20.

There may be fewer White House hopefuls on the debate stage, but the race is still far from being clear.

Who's left? Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump.
