Who Wants To Give The GOP Senator Graham Lindsey, the Pink Slip?


Here’s the good news. There’s a viable Democratic Party candidate in South Carolina who is stepping forward to challenge the current Republican Party US Senate Judiciary Chairman, Lindsey Graham who has become President Trump’s sycophant and water carrier. This will be an uphill battle but one worth waging.

According to data from the 2013 census, the South Carolina city of Charleston is 67.4 percent white, with African-Americans accounting for 29 percent of the population with about 5 percent of the population being Hispanic, and just 1.5 percent of Charleston races identifying as 2 or more races.

Besides the US Senate’s Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Graham is top on the list that Democrats want to see dethroned.

Democrat to announce Senate bid Wednesday against Lindsey Graham

On May 28, 2019, Tal Axelrod of the Hill penned the following report, “Democrat to announce Senate bid Wednesday (5/29/2019) against Lindsey Graham”


“Democrat Jaime Harrison, the former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, is set to announce Wednesday (5/29/2019) his Senate bid against Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).”

“The formal announcement will take place tomorrow morning. I’ll be back in South Carolina tonight, and it’s going to be tomorrow morning where I will formally announce that I am running for the US Senate for SC against Lindsey Graham,” Harrison said on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on Tuesday night.”

“Harrison currently serves as associate chairman and counselor for the Democratic National Committee (DNC). He first garnered national headlines when he unsuccessfully ran for DNC chair in 2017.

“He’ll face an uphill battle to defeat Graham in the ruby red Palmetto State. South Carolina has not elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1998. It voted for President Trump by 14 points in 2016 and Graham by over 15 points in 2014. Graham also entered 2019 with $3.2 million in his Senate campaign account.”

“However, South Carolina Democrats saw a glimpse of hope last year when Democrat Joe Cunningham upset Republican nominee Katie Arrington in the state’s 1st Congressional District.”

“Graham, who was first elected to the Senate in 2002, remains popular in South Carolina and has emerged as one of Trump’s staunchest allies on Capitol Hill, flexing his muscles as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee to help advance several of the president’s judicial nominees.”

“Instead of having a senator who’s pushing back on these types of things, he’s waiting to find his next lunch or dinner date with the president. That’s not helping the people of South Carolina. I want to represent people of SC,” Harrison told The Hill in February.”

“Graham said in February after Harrison said he would launch his exploratory committee that he was confident in his chances for reelection regardless of his opponent.”

“The question for voters … is, am I the best choice of the choices available,” Graham told McClatchy. “I think I’d make a good case, no matter who runs, that I’m the good choice. Time will tell.”

Democrats need to target military members in SC as this is a huge demographic and which may be up for grabs because of the republican President Donald Trump’s foreign policy decisions.

Here’re some of the military bases in SC…

  1. Gronda, this is good news. Graham has earned this challenge by his acquiescing to an unethical and immoral President. Graham used to be a candid legislator. Now, he is a sycophant to a man he once called an “asshole.” Keith
