Issues: Lieutenant Governor's race
South Carolinians have elected lieutenant governors since the end of the Civil War, but that ends on Nov. 4.
Either Republican Henry McMaster or Democrat Bakari Sellers will be the last candidate elected to the state’s No. 2 office in a stand-alone race. Starting in 2018, the governor and lieutenant governor will run on the same ticket.
This piece of history – along with a pair of notable politicians – have made the last solo race for the part-time job stand out this year, political experts say.
