COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster raised more than a million dollars in the most recent filing period as he seeks his first full term in office.

Online records show the Republican raised $1.28 million from May 23 to June 30. He finished the period with about $221,000 cash on hand.

Democratic nominee James Smith raised about $316,000 during the period. The state representative from Columbia had around $128,000 cash on hand.

Smith won his June 12 primary outright, defeating Florence attorney Marguerite Willis and Charleston consultant Phil Noble. McMaster was forced into a runoff with Greenville businessman John Warren, ultimately winning that contest on June 26 with about 54 percent of votes cast.
