COLUMBIA, S.C. (WSPA) – Governor Henry McMaster won his second full term as governor of South Carolina Tuesday evening.

Governor McMaster, 75, defeated Democratic opponent Joe Cunningham, 40, who repeatedly highlighted the 35-year age gap with his opponent.

McMaster’s argument for reelection has been simple — if you like what you’ve seen so far, I’ll give you more. He has touted the booming economy and his willingness to fight Democratic President Joe Biden when needed.

McMaster took the governor’s office on January 24, 2017, and finished the final two years of former Gov. Nikki Haley’s term. He then ran for governor in 2018 and defeated James White.

McMaster would become the longest-serving governor in the state’s history if he were to complete his term.
