President Trump gave a boost to South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster with a supportive tweet on the Saturday before the primary, but the 71-year-old could still be headed for a runoff after Tuesday’s election.

“Henry McMaster loves the people in South Carolina and was from the beginning with me,” Trump said one of his early supporters in the Palmetto state. “He’s strong on crime and borders, ideal for our military and our vets. He does a fantastic job as your Governor, and it has my full support, is a special guy.”

Henry McMaster loves the people in South Carolina and was from the beginning with me. He is strong on crime and borders, ideal for our military and our vets. He does a fantastic job as your Governor, and it has my full support, is a special guy. On Tuesday will be matched!

McMaster is the incumbent in the race, when he took over as South Carolina Governor in January 2017 as Nikki Haley, who was selected to be the Ambassador to the United Nations.

According to The State-run newspaper, no sitting Governor-of both parties-has ever been forced into a runoff in today’s politics in South Carolina. But former Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) Catherine Templeton and businessman John Warren was only able to make history.

Lt. Gov., Kevin Bryant, and former state Sen. Yancey McGill are also in the fight for the nomination, but it is either Warren or Templeton, the McMaster could take to a runoff election, according to the Charleston Post & Courier.

Templeton, a lawyer, was offered a position within the Trump manage, she turned down, she said. She faced questions about her leadership at DHEC and the state Department of licensing, Labor and regulation-and how you such jobs — during the campaign. Warren, a conservative businessman from the U.S. state of South Carolina, has no experience in politics. But his service in the Marines after 9/11 and his “fresh face” look at the policy, it could give him an advantage, according to the Post & Courier.

The breed has a lot of twists and turns. McMaster has accused, to wish to Templeton, to his running mate, a claim that is denied to you. And after an 18-year-old Templeton voluntarily came home to about 30 McMaster-campaign yard signs in your yard, Templeton, campaign manager, R. J. may III, accused the Governor’s campaign, behind the prank, and asked him to apologize. McMaster’s campaign has denied any involvement in the sign incident and a spokeswoman, reached out to the teenager.

Democrats are not immune to the possibility of a runoff election.

Many years of state Rep. James Smith is considered the favorite in the race for the democratic nomination-but not before you have been reported in a drain, of the Greenville News.

Smith, 50, was considered the “golden boy of the South Carolina democratic establishment” by The state in the last month. He received the support of former Vice-President Joe Biden and Rep. Jim Clyburn. He is a war veteran who earned a Purple Heart for his service in Afghanistan.

Smith faces Phil Noble, a longtime community activist from Charleston, and Marguerite Willis, a lawyer from Florence, in the elementary school.


The race, in Nevada, the first democratic Governor in two decades, has come to the democratic gubernatorial primary a nasty — with trump, the National Rifle Association and the Las-Vegas-concert-shots into the game.

Clark County Commission colleagues Christina Giunchigliani and Steve Sisolak are in a tight battle for the democratic nomination. Sisolak is the Chairman of the powerful Board of Clark County, the Las Vegas strip, and approximately two-thirds of Nevada residents. The 64-year-old was a prominent figure in the result of the mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert in October.

But Giunchigliani has — who goes by “Chris G” — the course Sisolak beat than it is to moderate and beat him for the receipt of an “A-” rating from the NRA in 2012.

Campaign ads in the race, the staff made to a PAC associated with the Clark County Education Association, supported Sisolak, criticized Giunchigliani to push through a 2005 amendment to restricted that a planned expansion of the state’s sex-offender reporting laws that would have included certain people, including teachers, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal. The ad accused Giunchigliani, who is the Nevada Assembly ways and means Committee, Vice-Chairman at the time was that “single-handedly protected perverted,” reported the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

In response, Giunchigliani your own advertisement published, with the title “Eight years Old”, in which she said that she had been sexually abused for more than a year as a child. She had allegedly never spoken publicly about the abuse up to this point.

“As Governor I will do everything I can to protect our children. I live with these memories. Steve Sisolak has to live with yourself,” she said.

Giunchigliani, 63, get the support, the reported starting in 2016, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the Las Vegas Review-Journal. In a robocall released over the weekend of the Giunchigliani campaign, Clinton and the state legislature calls for “an extraordinary progressive leader.”

Giunchigliani said she would direct state funds for Planned Parenthood — that would be a first for Nevada, according to the Review-Journal. You get the backing of Emily’s list, a pro-choice women’s group.

Sisolak, on the other hand, get the support of former Sen., Harry Reid, and Rep. Dina Titus, also a Democrat.

Republican state Attorney General, Adam is expected to Laxalt to replace that face off with either Sisolak or Giunchigliani in the autumn term-limited Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican. Laxalt is a former U.S. Marine Lieutenant who comes from a prominent political family. He is supported by billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson.


All eyes are also primary in Maine’s new ranked-choice voting system for Tuesday. With this new voting system, where voters rank the candidates in order of preference, don’t expect to find out who the school has won in the same night; state officials have warned that it could, before the primary results are completed.

This new system also makes the gubernatorial primaries even more of a toss-up. Republican Gov. Paul LePage is prevented from running for re-election because of term limits.

On the Democrat side, state attorney General Janet Mills, was largely seen to win as the favorite candidate, even though you lawyer Adam Cote should not be excluded. Former House Speaker Mark Eves and well-known former Portland police officer Mark Dion are also in the race.

Emily’s list is already poured at least US $ 300,000 in the race, as it backs-mills on Cote, according to the Bangor Daily News. Cote, however, led in fundraising.

As the Bangor Daily News reported that Cote and mills in a war of campaign ads in the last few weeks, each criticized the other, aligned with the Republicans in any way or fashion. But the Republican gubernatorial candidate, also have hit each other hard in the campaign commercials, the newspaper said.

State Senate majority Leader Garrett Mason, state House Minority Leader Ken Fredette, businessman Shawn Moody and former state health and Human services Commissioner Mary Mayhew are all in competition for the GOP strong. According to the Portland Press Herald, all four of the last TV debate before the primary and spent similar attitudes on important issues, and certainly not to attack the Governor.

Where the candidates did not agree, however, about the opioid epidemic. Mason said he would ensure naloxone to treat overdoses, is readily available. And Fredette said he would increase to help the state Drug Enforcement Agency and the deployment of the national guard, designed to stop the flow of drugs in the state, according to the Press Herald. Moody said, however, the solution lies in more education.
