June 6, 2018

Coalition Chaired by Pamela Evette

COLUMBIA – Today, the McMaster for Governor campaign announced a coalition of business leaders from across the state who have endorsed Henry McMaster in his re-election campaign.

A proven conservative leader, Governor McMaster is fighting to cut taxes and red tape for businesses; he has put forth an agenda to help South Carolina businesses thrive and attract new investment. Since he’s been governor, Henry McMaster has announced more than 20,000 new jobs and $6 billion in new capital investment. Team South Carolina is setting records for economic growth, and more people are working now than ever before.

“As a small business owner, I am proud to share Henry McMaster’s vision for helping all businesses across South Carolina prosper. With Governor McMaster’s pro-growth policies, businesses are thriving and bringing more good-paying jobs to our state. The governor has cut regulations, fought for lower taxes, and successfully recruited new businesses. This strong support from business leaders shows that he is the only person with the leadership and experience to keep South Carolina headed in the right direction.” – Pamela Evette, running mate
