Skip to comments.Nancy Mace to announce primary challenge against Lindsey Graham

The first woman to graduate from the Citadel is planning to challenge South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham in the Republican primary next year.
Charleston businesswoman Nancy Mace will head to Goose Creek Saturday to announce her Senate campaign, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
This isnt about one senator, Mace told TheDCNF. The only way to change Washington is to change who we send to Washington.
Washington is out of touch, she added. Voters are frustrated. Theyre looking for someone authentic.
In a June fundraising email, the Senate Conservatives Fund listed Graham as one of three Republican senators the group would support a primary campaign against if strong, conservative challengers emerge.
Mace, who has written articles for The Daily Caller, is a Fort Bragg native who graduated from South Carolinas military college in 1999, becoming the first woman graduate since the Citadel was founded in 1842. She later wrote a memoir of her experience at the school and runs a public relations firm in Charleston.
Last year, Club for Growth president Chris Chocola told a Christian Science Monitor event that Graham was a potential target.
If youre looking to the horizon of 2014, Chocola said, the sun may rise over South Carolina.
South Carolina Republican state Sen. Tom Davis predicted to TheDCNF last year that someone will challenge Lindsey Graham.
After Graham spoke out in support of the National Security Agencys data collection practices under the Obama administration, Mace wrote a scathing post at the conservative blog RedState chastising the senator.
In Senator Grahams world, the Constitution doesnt exist, she wrote. In Senator Grahams world, the entire Bill of Rights is negotiable.

Now SC conservatives can stop the BS and get with the program.
If they vote for that fool again, I hope never again to hear them complain.
I forgot about Cotton.
Cotton, Bevin and Mace all in one week!!
U go gyrl .........
I had to read up on her a bit. I wasn’t big about making the Citadel co-ed, and I wanted to be sure that she wasn’t behind any lawsuits before it happened. It turns out the barn door was already opened when she went through. Her dad was a very remarkable man. Oh, and she’s even prettier than Lindsay Graham.
I don’t think much of the woman that busted the Citadel running as a Conservative. Is that the best they can do?
Still anything is better then Graham I suppose.
YES! I’ll donate as soon as the site is up. Gayham has got to go.
Now if we can only get primary challengers for Collins and Cornyn.
This is how RINOs win, and will keep winning, until the whole USA is smoldering ashes.
Three conservatives split the conservative vote.
The RINO coasts to victory with the 20% of Romney-type Republicans, and all the Democrat cross-over votes.
I bet Graham isn’t giving this lady much of a chance against him and his political funding, but I also think he is REALLY underestimating the people’s displeasure with him.
I hope she beats him!
Removing Lindsay = One Less RINO to stab us in the back.
Go, Nancy, Indeed...
Mace Graham! Then mace him again!
Woo hoo!! Dump McGrahamnesty!!
“Three conservatives split the conservative vote.

Mace is in SC. Bevin in KY and Cotton in AR.
They are not all running against Graham.
