Is this guy the one to do it..and also win the general election? Is he getting the nod just because he's the first to announce? Any other possibilities?
Once you all have settled on a conservative to oppose Graham, you MUST get DeMint to endorse the person. If DeMint isn't willing to endorse, then I don't think you have a chance of pulling it off.
This guy has been a state senator since 2008 and is pretty solid and is a good candidate.
DeMint is tied to the GOP and no one in the GOP is going to endorse against an incumbent like RINO. Not even Palin does that. No one endorses against an incumbent.
The challenger will be on their own. He will have to work hard around the state reaching out to primary voters and we must have his back and help him raise the money to compete.
Forget about endorsements. It won’t happen. The GOP will close ranks and always do when there’s an incumbent. It’s down to the candidate and his supporters to get out there and convince the primary voters.

We don’t know. Let’s hold a primary election and see who shows up. South Carolina has a good farm team of conservatives and patriots. Join us and give us your input.
