Cunningham hopes to unseat incumbent Republican McMaster in SC governor’s race
In a Spartanburg Herald-Journal article about the upcoming South Carolina gubernatorial election between Democrat Joe Cunningham and incumbent Republican Gov. Henry McMaster, Furman University’s Danielle Vinson weighs in. A professor in the Department of Politics and International Affairs, Vinson said, “Who wins depends on who shows up to vote and what they want. Some, probably most, will rely solely on their partisan identification to make that decision.
“For others, especially those who don’t fit comfortably in either party or who aren’t typically politically active, whether they vote and how they vote will depend on the kind of information they get from and about the candidates.”
