Trump Endorsed by Key SC Politician
Donald Trump picked up a key endorsement from South Carolina’s Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster on Wednesday.
McMaster introduced Trump at his rally on Wednesday night, praising the billionaire.
“South Carolina is going to have the most decisive presidential primary election this cycle,” McMaster said.
“We want everybody to get out and vote and when you do, do what I do … vote for Donald Trump for president.”
The Hill reports:
He went on to praise Trump’s enthusiasm, which he called a breath of fresh air for politics.
“It’s not the dog in the fight that’s important, it’s the fight in the dog that’s important, and this dog has a lot of fight,” McMaster added.
The appearance comes just one night before Thursday’s GOP presidential debate, which Trump has said he’ll boycott after a feud with Fox News.
McMaster is a former state party chair and serves under Gov. Nikki Haley, who many view as on the GOP’s vice presidential short list.
