Gov. Henry McMaster managed to connect an anecdote about his bulldog to Samsung’s expansion in South Carolina, all in response to a question about improving higher education. He met casually with a group of about 50 students, mainly members of the College Republicans, in Russell House Tuesday night to talk about his career and answer questions on major state and local issues.
“College students are at the perfect age to get involved in … public policy and government,” McMaster said. “It’s a great opportunity for me to encourage people to get take an interest in it. It’s your state, it’s your country, and you need to know what’s going on.”

FLORENCE, S.C. – Gov. Henry McMaster and his running mate – Pamela Evette, a businesswoman from Travelers Rest – made a campaign stop Monday evening in Florence at a meeting of the Florence County Republican Women and the Florence County Republican Party at the Floyd Conference Center.
After being introduced by Mal Weatherly, chair of the Florence County Republican Party, and receiving a standing ovation from those present, McMaster began his speech by outlining his connection to the Florence and the Pee Dee region.
“Thank you very much,” McMaster said. “Now I need to point out that my momma was born on Cherokee Road, Ida Dargan. The Dargans go way back in this county.”
McMaster listed several cousins still living in Florence. The building McMaster gave his speech in, the Floyd Center, is named after another cousin, Eddie Floyd.
“We’re all over the place,” he said. “It’s just great. And my daddy’s family: Daddy’s father was from Winnsboro, and his momma was from Williamsburg County, but they moved here, and so my daddy was born here as well. And so Momma and Daddy being born here, I’m totally qualified.”
