Two polls conducted over the same May 29-31 period draw largely the same conclusions. First, that the Republican race will advance to a June 26th run-off election, and second, that businessman and military veteran John Warren is making a serious come-from-behind bid for second place.
According to the Fabrizio Lee polling firm (500 SC likely Republican primary voters), Gov. Henry McMaster leads Mr. Warren and former Nikki Haley Administration cabinet official Catherine Templeton, 33-19-17%. Target Insyght (400 SC likely Republican primary voters) finds a similar result, but with a different order. They see Gov. McMaster leading 37-25-20% over Ms. Templeton and Mr. Warren, respectfully.
