The Bathroom Wars wage on, this time in South Carolina, where the governor is saying no.
Catherine Templeton, the South Carolina Republican challenging Gov. Henry McMaster (R-SC), made national news Tuesday night when she said she was “proud of the Confederacy” during a gubernatorial debate. The remark drew backlash and criticism from several groups across the state.
Drawing fewer headlines, but just as notable, was Templeton’s vocal support for a North Carolina-style transgender bathroom bill. That bill became law in North Carolina and was later repealed by the state legislator after Gov. Pat McCrory (R-NC) was defeated by now-Gov. Roy Cooper (D-NC).
When asked if South Carolina needed a similar law, McMaster responded that the state did not.

“I don’t think we need such a bill,” McMaster said. “This is a great state, great people. As you know, we get along very well, and I think we’re doing just fine.”
