McMaster, Warren battle for trump-based in SC Governor runoff

The political battle between the incumbent, Henry McMaster, and John Warren, the next Republican candidate for South Carolina Governor is narrowed to one factor: the level of President Trump best. Political strategists say that they will run on similar policies, what is a tight race, Tuesday’s primary runoff.

COLUMBIA, S. C. – Henry McMaster took a big leap, as he is in favour of Donald Trump, who had been defeated for President in January 2016, as well as the billionaire business man and his 16 conventional primary enemies.

Now, the South Carolina Governor hopes that the early support pays off as the incumbent of him over the top in its Republican primary runoff this Tuesday sees the visit of the President and Vice-President.

President Trump has announced that he will visit South Carolina to stump for McMaster on Monday evening, on the heels of a visit by Vice-President Pence

“Henry has worked so hard and was so loyal to me, I am looking forward to return!” Trump tweeted.

I’m going to do the Columbia, South Carolina, on Monday evening, a campaign speech for one of my early supporters, a man who really loves the people in South Carolina, Governor Henry McMaster. Henry has worked so hard and was so loyal to me, I am looking forward to return!

McMaster replied, “I am honored by your friendship and support, Mr President. On behalf of South Carolinians everywhere, we look forward to your visit on Monday evening!”

As in so many Republican primaries this year, the gubernatorial race may depend, in fact, what the candidate can do most of the convincing with Trump, according to Dean Emeritus at the University of South Carolina, Charles brewer – although both McMaster and rival John Warren to run on similar platforms.

Another factor is simply whether the mass of voters supported the candidates eliminated in the June 12 primary, Warren or McMaster. Warren make a great game for those who has to go to voters but still a long way to go.

“Certainly, McMaster needs to win a handful of points,” brewer said, but added, “Warren the win on 25 points … It is a difficult climb for Warren.”

McMaster was the clear leader in the June 12 primary, but was forced into the runoff after failing a majority, beat win, with 42 percent of the vote, compared with Warren 28 percent.

McMaster, a politician, supported a candidate trump in 2016, when he was still lieutenant governor. Later, he became Governor after then-Gov. Nikki Haley was to be listened to, Trump’s Ambassador to the United Nations.

McMaster is not shy about the voters remembered how he secured the trump card is, before most of the others in the Republican party.

“I fought with him in South Carolina. In fact, you tell me, I was told the first Deputy in the country to support it,” McMaster. “We see things alike, and I think he is a great man.”

Like trump, he has his agenda has been to “the swamp.”

“I have followed, drug dealer, drug dealer, corrupt politician,” McMaster said. “I know how to do it. My opponents don’t know how you do it.”

Warren, though, is advertising for a similar shake-things-up approach to governance.

“The people are tired of the status quo. You are tired of the corruption. They are said to be tired of the incompetence,” Warren. “What you see is a unification of all the people, the support of the conservative reforms.”

Warren, like Trump, is a political newcomer with a background in real estate. He is the founder and CEO of Lima One capital, a specialty mortgage finance company, is currently lending to residential real estate investors and housing companies, operating in over 40 States.

As a Marine combat veteran, served in Iraq in 2006, and led over 300 combat missions, he sets out on a message of the execution by the government as a military mission.

“I think this choice comes down to the management … and leadership comes down to a person’s core values. Your core competencies and whether or not you have courage,” said Warren. “We have to have somebody to take of the courage, the career politicians, the government insiders, the lobbyists and the special interests, and that’s what I’m going to do as Governor.”

The runoff winner will eventually be the primary in front of state Rep. James Smith, who won by a landslide during the June 12 democratic gubernatorial elections. As Warren Smith, a war veteran. He received a Purple Heart after a mission in Afghanistan on a 12-month deployment with the Army National Guard.

“The challenge for the Republicans is that they are under a hard right to the nomination … but need to go to some of the independent voters [in November],” brewer said. “It may be, Smith’s advantage of crossover voters from the Republican party, the anti-trump.”

However, a Democrat, has served in the Governor’s Mansion in 16 years.

In the GOP primary, political analysts say that, despite Warren’s deficit with the name recognition, he is on the rise. He received the support of political personalities on the state, as well as its formal rivals, in the hope of your support, you can put him over the top Tuesday in the runoff election.

“Name recognition is always a factor in the operation of a state-wide race, and you have a candidate that is running for that kind of thing, like McMaster has, and a candidate for the, in principle, outside of the in the Hinterland is not known, and only known as a business man-so the challenge is much bigger for John Warren, as it is for the Governor McMaster,” brewer explained.

The ex-candidate endorsements for Warren did not bother to McMaster, the reasons:

“I think that I was the most important, significant confirmation of them is all of the above and our President, Donald Trump.”
