SC hopeful: Trump, Bannon 'will resolve their differences'

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A Republican who's courted support from both President Donald Trump and his former strategist Steve Bannon says she's not fazed by apparent discord between the two men.

Catherine Templeton told The Associated Press Wednesday she's a fan of both men and knows they will "resolve their differences and work together to drain the establishment swamp."

Templeton was reacting to a statement in which Trump said Bannon "not only lost his job, he lost his mind" when he left the White House.

Trump has endorsed Gov. Henry McMaster in South Carolina's GOP primary. Bannon's made no endorsement, but Templeton says they've remained in touch since she was courted for an administration job. She introduced him at The Citadel last year.

Campaigns for McMaster and Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant didn't immediately comment.
