Incumbent GOP Gov. Henry McMaster and Democratic challenger James Smith will meet in two debates this month. The two candidates for lieutenant governor also will meet in a debate.
The debates will air on SC ETV and will be co-hosted by the Charleston Post and Courier, the newspaper said Wednesday.
The first debate between McMaster and Smith will be Oct. 17 at Francis Marion University in Florence. A second debate between the two will air Oct. 25 from Greenville Technical College.
Both candidates’ lieutenant governor-running mates, Greenville Republican businesswoman Pamela Evette and Lancaster Democratic Rep. Mandy Powers Norrell, also will debate Oct. 29 at the ETV studio in Columbia.
