U.S. Senate

Incumbent Sen. Lindsey Graham is seeking a 4th term. This race has drawn national attention and become increasingly competitive; Democratic nominee Jaime Harrison has proven to be a prodigious fundraiser. Graham is running several points behind Donald Trump in polling and some forecasters see this race as a toss-up.

U.S. House

7 Congressional Districts: 5 Republicans | 2 Democrats

Joe Cunningham (D) flipped this coastal district in 2018 after Republican incumbent Mark Sanford lost his bid for renomination. Cunningham is slightly favored over state Rep. Nancy Mace. How Donald Trump does here - he won the district by 13 points in 2016 - will likely have a lot to do with how this race plays out.

Incumbents in the other six districts are likely to be reelected.

Governor

Next election is 2022. Gov. Henry McMaster (R, 2nd term) is the incumbent. McMaster's first term begain in 2017; he was Lt. Governor when former Gov. Nikki Haley resigned to joint the Trump adminiatration. He was reelected in 2018. Due to the short nature of that first term, he will be eligible to run in 2022, despite the state's two consecutive term limit rule.
