McMaster/Warren GOP Runoff Set in 2 Weeks - Smith Wins Dems

June 13, 2018

South Carolinians cast votes in the primary election Tuesday, including their choice in the governor's race.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, an early supporter of President Donald Trump,
has been forced into a runoff with John Warren for the Republican nomination.

Longtime state Rep. James Smith has won the Democratic nomination. 
Smith defeated Charleston consultant Phil Noble and Florence attorney Marguerite Willis in Tuesday's primary.
Smith led the pack in fundraising, endorsements and name recognition.
Smith has served in the state Legislature for 22 years. He was a JAG officer in the US Army Reserve and
South Carolina Army National Guard but resigned his commission after the Sept. 11 attacks to enlist in the infantry.
