I agree that we need a much narrower field. True tea partiers should sit down with tea party candidates and figure out a strategy of quickly determining the most viable tea party candidate and uniting around him or her.
Let them run but they should agree to exit the race when it becomes apparent who is the strongest tea party candidate.

It will be apparent after the first round of voting which is the strongest challenger to Graham, and there will be a run-off. This is a run-off type primary. The more the merrier at the beginning. They just need to keep Graham from getting 50%.
“Let them run but they should agree to exit the race when it becomes apparent who is the strongest tea party candidate.”
That’s a good strategy for states without a runoff, but in SC, we want as many candidates as possible so as to keep Graham below 50% in the first round and force the runoff. Having a single “TEA Party candidate” (who won’t have anywhere near the name ID as Graham) running against Graham likely will result in Graham winning the primary by 54%-46% or something; having several candidates running, all of whom bring out their supporters, should keep Graham below 50% and permit conservatives to coalesce around the second-place finisher and beat Graham in the lower-turnout runoff.
