Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to comment on the 2014 S.C. race for lieutenant governor.
“Henry McMaster, Lt. Governor of South Carolina who endorsed me, beat failed @CNN announcer Bakari Sellers, so badly. Funny!” Trump tweeted.
Longtime Trump supporter McMaster beat Sellers, a former Bamberg state representative, in 2014, the last standalone race for the post. Going forward, the governor and lieutenant governor will be running together on the same ticket.

Sellers, now a CNN announcer, weighed in on Twitter.
