Senator Lindsey Graham Is About To Get Maced Nancy Mace Set To Challenge For Senate Seat
Freedom Outpost ^ | Aug 2, 2013 | Joshua Cook

Posted on 08/02/2013 4:54:46 PM PDT by EXCH54FE

Nancy Mace, first female graduate of the citadel, small business woman, will speak at Berkeley County GOP breakfast this Saturday to address her decision on SC’s 2014 U.S. race against two-term incumbent Lindsey Graham.

In June, Mace told the Post,

“…I think that if anyone is going to primary an incumbent Senator they need to have a statewide grassroots network. They need to have a message that resonates with not only the one corner of the Republican Party, but all corners of the Republican Party whether you are a veteran, whether you covet the right to life, whether you are Second Amendment supporter, whether you are a tea party person, or a liberty person, or if you are just a regular Republican who is a patriot. It’s going to take someone who can bring folks together. No one that I can tell at this point can raise the amount of money that Senator Graham has in his war chest right now, but I don’t believe that it takes this kind of resources to win a US Senate race in this State. At some point it reaches saturation level and I don’t think it’s necessarily won on TV yet, I think it’s won on the ground in grass roots.”

Nancy Mace is a wife, mother and small business owner. She is the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina. She holds a masters in mass communication from the University of Georgia. She is the author of In The Company of Men: A Woman at The Citadel (Simon and Schuster, 2001). Nancy is the daughter of retired Army Brigadier General Emory Mace and school teacher Dr. Anne Mace, PhD.

Anyone will be better than Lindsey Graham. However I would like to know a lot more about her views on the issues. Bottom line is the voters of South Carolina will make the call on this.

Graham needs to be retired whatever the cost. Better a straight up Democrat than this guy.

That Mace turns out to be a Repub is great. But either way, Graham (and McCain) needs to go.

What is her political experience? And what are her views? Just because she is running against the RINO doesn’t mean she is worth a vote or a contribution.

In my opinion, any female that makes it through the Citadel has it together political experience or not.

It’s a dead certainty she is far more conservative than Romney. So not one person who voted for that POS better p\say squat against her, call her a poor choice/whatever.

If they could toss their principles for a proven leftist, they can make due on an even partial conservative.

Graham voted to confirm all of Obama’s Supreme Court nominees. She needs to be asked if she’d have voted to confirm Kagan and Sotomayor?

If I am convinced I get a better deal out of her than I am getting with the woos, Juan McCain’s butt buddy, then I’ll send her bags of money.

Let’s see how she does after Christmas...

It seems obvious that they keep sending him back to the Senate because #1 - he says he is a Republican, #2 He hasn’t been primaried and #3 - they don’t want to put a Demoncrat in that office. Makes sense to me.

What difference does it make? People have been crying to get Grahamensty out of office - they now have that opportunity and some are rearing their ugly heads now - eating their own again.

Graham has been a turncoat for a long time and needs to GO!

Sadly no guarantees these days, she could easily be another Rubio or Jeff Flake. This country has no shortage of liars.

Graham is a known liar though, a despicable, little weasel.

If I could toss him and replace him with an empty chair, I would.

An empty chair can be trusted.

Have been for years. Lots of ‘name’ freepers seem to be having some coming out parties lately. See last night’s thread on this topic for a good look at that.

I hope some South Carolinian will ask her (and ask every other primary opponent of Grahamnesty) to name the current Senators she would most closely vote with. If she names Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, then I think we’ve found our candidate. If she names Susan Collins and Lamar Alexander, she’s obviously not the one.

As badly as I’d like to see Grahamnesty go down in flames, I hope he’s not replaced by a Kay Bailey Hutchinson.

Good for you. Seriously. More should. People need a fut check. If they can vote Romney they sure as hell can vote for her.

But instead, last night began with “There are better options” and a bunch of backhanded crap by the lib win of FR. They lined right up behind the uberlib, but a woman they don’t even know was IMMEDIATELY dismissed.

Look at the names doing that folks. Then do basic math as to where their true beliefs lie. We are lousy with leftists.

“Haveth she a campaign web site?”

All I can find is this site.

http://nancymace.net/

May be more after a special announcement this Saturday in her home town of Goose Creek, S.C. 9:00am at the Berkeley County GOP Breakfast at the American Legion Post, 116 Howe Hall Road.

I hope some S. C FR’s will attend and report back with some good information.
