A. Citizen: Democrats For Lee Bright?
fitsnews.com ^ | 11/18/13

Posted on 11/19/2013 5:23:54 AM PST by cotton1706

The S.C. Democratic Party establishment has never been particularly fond of Jay Stamper, the carpetbagging Democrat on a hopeless mission to replace U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham. But following Jaime Harrison’s blowup with Stamper last month on gay marriage and his subsequent social media meltdown, Harrison is on a jihad to recruit a candidate to primary Stamper.

If Graham’s No. 1 tea party challenger Lee Bright is smart (which of course he isn’t) he’s crossing his fingers that Harrison succeeds.

Why? If no one challenges Stamper there is no Democratic primary – and Democrats will cross over and vote in the GOP primary instead for Lindsey Graham (viewing him the lesser-of-four-republican evils). But if Stamper faces a serious primary challenger, Dems won’t vote for Graham, they’ll vote in their own contested primary. That’s bad news for Graham because it means he’s less likely to get the 50 percent-plus-one needed to avoid a runoff against Bright. If there’s a runoff between Bright and Graham, the tea party will rally and Bright may very well be the Republican nominee. Bright versus any Democrat, Bright wins. Bottom line: Harrison’s grudge against Stamper may end up adding another tea party nutcase to the US Senate.

Harrison has tried without success to lure Anton Gunn and Clay Middleton into the race. Neither man is available for a suicide mission against Graham. Moreover, neither wants to risk the career-ending prospect of being the Vic Rawl to Stamper’s Alvin Greene. So Harrison is now sweetening the pot, promising to smooth the way for anyone willing to run against Stamper by arranging for Stamper to receive a vote of no confidence by the party’s Executive Committee.

The DNC wont allow it.

With the wealth of the US Treasury they can easily buy off any Dem who would mess up their plan to put linda back to work on the Dem agenda.

Lee Bright is more intelligent than the entire Senate dim cabal put together. I have read his words and listened to his interviews. This man is smart... like Palin and Cruz... so the rats channel satan to destroy him. BURN IN HELL ALL RATS AND RINOS. YOU ALL (gop/e and dims) WORSHIP satan so spend eternity with him!
