Replacing Lindsey Graham: Exclusive Interview with Richard Cash
The Greenville (SC) Post ^ | Thursday, August 08, 2013 | Joshua Cook

Posted on 08/08/2013 4:27:36 AM PDT by Resettozero

“If the Tea Party and the grassroots can beat Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, the Tea Party is back my friend, and everyone across the country will know it.”

This week Joshua Cook met up with Richard Cash at the South Carolina Against Lindsey Graham Press Conference to ask him a few questions. Cash is running against two-term incumbent Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Joshua Cook: Mr. Cash, for those who don’t know you, please tell us your background?

Cash: I’m 53-years-old. I’ve been married for 28 years and have eight children. I have worked as a computer program analyst. I have worked as a pro-life activist, and for the last 14 years, I have started and developed two small businesses from the ground up.

Cook: In your experience as a small business owner, what is lacking in Washington, D.C. right now as far as creating an environment that allows entrepreneurs to succeed. Small business is the engine for job creation. What needs to happen in order to create this environment in Washington?

Cash: Well, it is not just small businesses. I mean this administration probably has less people from the business world than any administration in history. It is just what I call Ivy League academics. They’re up there playing ‘government.’ I’d say the biggest problem right now for business is Obama Care. Instead of businesses thinking about how to grow and how they can expand, they are thinking about how can they take full time employees and get them down for 30 hours or less so they don’t have to cover them on insurance. I mean this has got the business world thinking. They are thinking about how can we downsize, cut here and there to try to protect themselves.

If you want to dethrone Lindsey, run Mark Sanford or Trey Gowdy. SC voters love their Gamecocks and Tigers, and they do not pay much attention to new politicians. Name rec counts in this state.

Please don’t run a no name and expect to win.

The one to beat Lindsey - with tea party, business, libertine and social con support - is announcing 13th.

Yea, ol' Strom and Fritz would surely agree -- all the way to the polling booths!

Love the sound of that! Who knows, maybe Linda finishes third in the primary?

So which candidates are acting as stalking horses for Graham to dilute the vote and keep him in office?

I like Nancy Mace and was thinking of sending her some money but don’t know much about her. I sure hope SC conservatives can settle on one and not be fooled by GOPe strategy to dilute base conservative votes with too many candidates. Is it true that dems always vote for Graham in open primary?

Lee Bright hasn’t announced he will run yet, but there’s every indication he will.

Actually, the more candidates the better. By way of explanation:

Good on all issues. But I wish that he would voluntarily commit to one term. Washington corrupts everyone—if you want to get re-elected. We need citizen representation—not career politicians.

Thanks!
I guess the next question would be if there are any democrat challengers? Sounds like there needs to be in order to keep the dems from voting in republican primary and re electing Graham. ???

I have alway heard that Graham is elected every year on mostly dem votes in primary, but was not sure how it all worked. He needs to be removed and we should do everything we can to accomplish that goal. Like the article says...it would send a powerful message to the GOPe rinos and Karl Rove in particular.

That’s confusing! Are you saying Joshua Cook is a libertine?

Agreed. But, reality trumps the way things should be. This race is far too important to send Lindsey back. Lindsey is a Fritz Hollings style senator who votes against the wishes of those he represents.

Better hope there is a primary on the rat side, or they will vote en-masse for Limp Lindsey...

Haven't heard either Mace, Bright, or Cash say that Graham's defeat is a certitude. Every S.C. conservative hopefully understands that it's an uphill campaign to the end.

Nice interview with Richard Cash.

The good thing about this thread is that I haven’t seen a single negative comment directed toward any of Lindsey Graham’s challengers. Let’s hope that continues and that conservatives hold their fire to direct it solely in Little Lindsey’s direction and not at any of his challengers.

That's precisely what happened in 2008 and the rules have not changed significantly. It's a problem indeed. Graham's defeat will not be easy at all.

Bingo! Sounds like the TP should find a couple of blue dogs to run on dem ticket to me, but I am no strategist. I am tired of these rinos rigging elections and districts for permanent power. Same problem with getting rid of Boehner.

Yes, popular Democrats (the kind Jack French Kemp kept calling “our Democratic friends”) do sometimes pack the little Republican primaries in SC. It’s allowed. And it keeps Lindsey smiling.

Yes, Strom voted for DC statehood in 1978, along with Howard Baker, and started edging leftward thereafter. I don’t recall if he voted for King Day, but he may well have.

I haven’t heard a thing about any RATS in the race. SC is overwhelmingly Republican. Any attempt by the RATS probably won’t go far.

Indeed. Therefore, if there is a rat running, he (or she) needs an opponent to keep the rat crossovers out of our primary.

We can play this game smart...

And thank you for the pings.

I just saw online Lou Dobbs mangled interview with Nancy Mace on camera. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vwJuBrpPto&feature=youtu.be&a
It is mystifying to me that none of the three guys who I have seen interview her so far (Cavuto, Beck, Dodd) seemingly can remember how to conduct a decent, informative interview.

Dodd botched his part and stumbled much; Mace did as good as anyone could in countering Dodd’s unveiled attempts at GOTCHA! What’s up with these attacks on Mace from the very outset of her campaign?

Watching Dobbs go after her, and remembering the previous interviews she's had this week, I had the same thought. Beck and Dobbs both showed the leading edges of contempt for her. Just wondering about these things.
