COLUMBIA — Greenville businessman John Warren got a major boost Thursday in his Republican runoff campaign against Gov. Henry McMaster by forming a united front with his former rivals. In the first of several stops Thursday to capitalize on their endorsements, Warren appeared with Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant and former public health chief Catherine Templeton. Together, they received 56 percent of Tuesday’s GOP primary vote, forcing a June 26 runoff against McMaster, who managed only 42 percent. Warren finished second, and is hoping his rivals’ backing could push him over the top. By Meg Kinnard. SENT: 450 words, photos.
