Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham Likely to Face Several Primary Challengers
Posted on 07/29/2013 7:02:57 AM PDT by bestintxas
Senator Lindsey Graham, who already has one announced challenger in the 2014 South Carolina Republican primary for the United States Senate in businessman Richard Cash, may soon face two more challengers. Both State Senator Lee Bright and Nancy Mace, the first female graduate of the Citadel, are preparing to enter the race soon, according to The Daily Beast.
Graham's allies recently publicly stated they expect he will face multiple challengers. On July 23, former South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson, who runs a Super PAC that supports Graham, the West Main Street Values Fund, told the Washington Examiner that Graham "will face a 'spirited' and 'competitive' primary challenge."
Dawson, however, expects Graham to prevail. "Senator Graham has been one of the most successful politicians at the ballot box and has cut the hide of a South Florida alligator when it comes to campaigns and elections," he said.
In addition to friendly Super PACs and a strong network of supporters in the South Carolina Republican establishment at the state and county levels, the Graham campaign has $6.3 million cash on hand. In contrast, Richard Cash, his only announced opponent, had only $248,396 in cash on hand as of June 30, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Surely drop-kicking this jackass out of the ballpark will be an easy matter.
It sure looks to me like Graham has helped his re-election chances by getting some lesser folks to throw their hat to splinter the vote.
Lee Bright clearly has the best chance to primary the McQueeg mini-me.
more than one challenger is actually a good thing for the incumbent. it will split the anti-lindsey vote.
Truly, conservatives should have ONE and only ONE in this race, and not water down the anti-Lindsay vote. But often their egos are too big for one or several of them to step back and concede to a frontrunner...thus the RINO splits the vote and gets in for another reprehensible six years. If there are THREE we need to "primary" in the worst way, it has to be McConnell, Graham and now Rubio.
