Just days before the primary runoff election, Republican gubernatorial candidates John Warren and Gov. Henry McMaster battled it out in their final debate on Wednesday.
President Donald Trump was a strong presence in the debate, both in candidate responses and audience reactions. Warren pointed out the irony of McMaster’s traditional political career compared to the outsider movement embodied by Trump—who endorses McMaster, despite Warren’s outsider status. During the debate, McMaster repeatedly mentioned the benefit of having a political veteran in office.
