Henry McMaster on Principles & Values



We believe in faith, family, the flag, and freedom

We are in the midst of a stunning economic resurgence--with the opportunity to seize prosperity for generations to come. We recognize our tremendous assets. We acknowledge our challenges. We believe in faith. We believe in family. We believe in the flag and we believe in free markets. We believe in liberty--in that shining city on the hill of which President Reagan spoke. And we know that liberty is worth fighting for. And remember, always teach the children to be proud of South Carolina!

1986 Senate run; 2002 elected AG; 2010 Gubernatorial run

McMaster received the Republican nomination in 1986 in his campaign for the United States Senate; he was ultimately defeated by Democratic incumbent Senator Fritz Hollings. Four years later, he lost his bid for lieutenant governor. In 1991, however, McMaster was nominated by then-Governor Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. to serve on the Commission on Higher Education; he was later confirmed by the South Carolina State Legislature.

Prior to his tenure as lieutenant governor, McMaster served two terms as attorney general of South Carolina. He was first elected to the position in 2002 and won re-election in 2006. Though he was eligible to run for a third term, he instead announced his candidacy for the state's 2010 gubernatorial election. He was defeated in the June 8 Republican primary and endorsed one of his opponents, then-state Rep. Nikki Haley, for the governorship
