State Senator Mia McLeod Joins Activist Gary Votour and Former Congressman Joe Cunningham in 2022 Governor’s Race

State Senator Mia McLeod (right) this morning became the third Democratic candidate to announce her bid for Governor as Democrats seek to unseat incumbent Henry McMaster in 2022.

McLeod joins a primary field including Democratic activist Gary Votour and former SC-01 Congressman Joe Cunningham, both of whom announced earlier this year. McLeod’s bid is notable and historic as, if elected, she would be the first black woman elected to lead any state in the country.

“I’m running for Governor because it’s time to make South Carolina a place where everyone can thrive,” Senator McLeod said. “As a fifth-generation South Carolinian and small business owner from Bennettsville, I’ve spent my life standing up for people and places that our Governor and too many of our state’s Republican ‘leaders’  have neglected.”

Democrats will hold their primary in June next year.

“A robust Democratic Primary will provide a springboard to victory in November 2022, ” said SCDP Chair Trav Robertson. “The bold initiatives of the Biden Administration are proving popular with Republicans and Democrats, who are tired of obstructionist leaders like McMaster. He and other Republican leaders only care about restricting women’s reproductive health choices and have been silent on issues we know voters care about, like healthcare, infrastructure and racial and criminal justice.
