Attorney General Alan Wilson (R), son of US Rep. Joe Wilson (R-Springdale/Lexington County), who had been considered a possible Republican primary challenger to Gov. Henry McMaster announced earlier this week that he will seek re-election to a third term in his current position. Gov. McMaster, who ascended to the position when predecessor Nikki Haley (R) was appointed US Ambassador to the United Nations, will face a primary challenge at least from Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant and former Lt. Gov. Yancey McGill, however. State Rep. James Smith (D-Columbia) is the only announced Democratic gubernatorial candidate to date.
