Former S.C. Attorney General Henry McMaster told a group of senior citizens in Sun City Wednesday that he will be an advocate for economic development and for small businesses, in addition to looking out for the state's senior citizens, if he is elected lieutenant governor, according to a story posted at thestate.com.
McMaster told a group of about 20 people that he will work on causes to benefit senior citizens, including possible tax reduction for the elderly. The lieutenant governor oversees the state's Office on Aging.
McMaster faces three other candidates for the Republican nomination for the lieutenant governor's office in the June 10 primary: Charleston developer Pat McKinney, Columbia pastor Ray Moore and Columbia businessman Mike Campbell. The winner will face state Rep. Bakari Sellers, the lone Democratic candidate, in the Nov. 4 general election.
