Catherine Templeton Announces 2018 Run for Governor

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) – One of the State’s top Republicans announced she is running for Governor in 2018.

Catherine Templeton made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.

Templeton has run the State’s Labor Department and the Department of Health.

In a release, Templeton says “I have never run for office, and I won’t run for the next one, but I can’t unsee what I saw in Columbia.  The corruption, waste, self interest, and good ol boy system is alive and well.  It’s ridiculous.”

In the release, Templeton went on to say “Right now is the time to send someone with practical experience running a business, making a home, and reforming government to call balls and strikes and do the math in Columbia.  We can’t wait another decade to get started.”
