Democrats in South Carolina are calling for an apology over comments GOP Gov. Henry McMaster made during Saturday’s South Carolina Republican Party Convention.

According to The State reporter Joseph Bustos, McMaster said, “I look forward to the day that Democrats are so rare we have to hunt them with dogs.”

In a 2018 event in Anderson, McMaster also compared Democrats to “dogs.”

In an emailed response to the Greenville News, McMaster’s communications director, Brandon Charochak, said the governor meant the comment as a joke.

“Governor McMaster has been making this joke at GOP conventions for years, and everyday South Carolinians understand that it’s a joke,” Charochak said. “If South Carolina Democrat partisans can no longer bear lighthearted jokes made at their expense, then maybe they should focus their energy on winning and not whining.”
