President Donald J. Trump will join South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster at a campaign rally in Columbia Monday evening. McMaster is facing John Warren in a Republican primary runoff, which will take place on Tuesday.

The winner of the primary will face Democrat James Smith in the November general election.

Vice President Mike Pence attended a rally for McMaster in Conway, South Carolina on Saturday to show his support. The vice president highlighted that he and Trump “couldn’t be more proud” of the job the governor has done after taking over for former governor Nikki Haley. Haley is now U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Trump expressed his gratitude for the South Carolina governor on Twitter earlier this month saying McMaster has his “full and complete endorsement.” Trump also noted on Twitter that McMaster was one of his very early supporters.

The rally will take place at 7 p.m. at Airport High School.
