McMaster said his wife, Peggy, is from Spartanburg, and the two have been married 38 years. They have two children, Henry Jr. and Mary Rogers.

He said South Carolina has “amazing” natural resources, a growing economy, and unlimited potential.

McMaster said improving roads and education are challenges the state faces. He also said maintaining a business-friendly environment is important.
