2018 primaries: Key takeaways as Democrats get a shock and Trump triumphs. (USA Today, 6/27/2018)
Trump made it clear to supporters when he flew through a thunderstorm Monday night to lead a rally for Gov. Henry McMaster that if the governor was not nominated for another term, the "fake news" would take it out on Trump. South Carolina came through for the president, giving McMaster a win in a runoff against businessman John Warren.
Overall, 24,690 fewer voters found their way to the polls for the runoff election, a drop of 7.2% from the primary election. Can't say that Trump lit a fire here.
