Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-03) “an­nounced Monday that he won’t run for South Car­o­lina gov­ernor next year. … Duncan … had been men­tioned as a po­ten­tial can­did­ate for gov­ernor be­fore” former Gov. Nikki Haley (R) “left of­fice.”

Duncan: “I am rul­ing out run­ning for gov­ernor in ‘18. … I’m fo­cused on serving the 3rd Dis­trict.”

“Duncan said Pres­id­ent Don­ald Trump’s de­cision to name … Haley as am­bas­sad­or to the United Na­tions was a ‘game-changer’ for the gov­ernor’s race. Haley was re­placed in Janu­ary by” now-Gov. Henry Mc­Mas­ter (R).

Duncan: “You see a lot of folks that aren’t even think­ing about it now.” (In­de­pend­ent Mail)

BOW TO THE MAS­TER. Mc­Mas­ter “re­por­ted rais­ing $961,015 from late Janu­ary through March, giv­ing him an ad­vant­age over” former state cab­in­et mem­ber Cath­er­ine Tem­pleton (R), “who hauled in $702,340 since Janu­ary.” (Columbia State)
