Republican gubernatorial candidate Henry McMaster gained the support of former South Carolina governor David Beasley Friday.
"And it just thrills me today to receive the endorsement of Governor Beasley," McMaster said. "There is not an endorsement I would rather have."
McMaster says this is a wonderful moment for his campaign and that he's going to continue to focus on the potential of the state as Beasley did during his term.
Beasley says he was not planning to get involved in the governor's race, but the tone of the race made him change his mind, prompting his decision to endorse McMaster.
