List of governors of South Carolina

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Governor of South Carolina
Seal of the Governor of South Carolina.png
Incumbent
Henry McMaster

since January 24, 2017
StyleHis Excellency
Term lengthFour years, renewable once consecutively

This is a list of South Carolina governors. The current governor of South Carolina is Henry McMaster who has been in office since January 24, 2017. South Carolina governors are counted only once; therefore, Joseph West, for instance, a colonial governor who served three non-consecutive terms, is considered the second Governor of South Carolina, not the second, fourth, and seventh. The first Governor was William Moultrie.
