Skip to comments.TEA PARTY GROUPS LINE UP BEHIND LEE BRIGHT FOR SENATE - Major Game Changing Endorsements
Posted on 02/20/2014 3:58:08 AM PST by C. Edmund Wright
In what could be a major turning point in the race to oust Lindsey Graham from the U.S. Senate, most of South Carolinas grassroots and Tea Party leaders are officially lining up to endorse Lee Bright Thursday morning on the front steps of the State House in Columbia. The announcement is set for 10 a.m.
The boost for the upstate Senator comes a little over a month after the Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach, where the consensus was that Bright carried the candidates debate and had a clear plurality of support dynamics that have been supported by several recent polls.
This is going to be a big day for us, said Bright, adding, South Carolinas great Tea Parties are the heartbeat of the state and of the nation. Our campaign has focused on what is important across South Carolina and across America and not whats important to lobbyists inside the beltway, or to the senior Senator from Arizona. Washington is out of touch with the rest of the country, and Lindsey Graham is a poster boy for that isolation and ignorance.
Bright went on to say that our citizens want the Obama-Reid-Schumer juggernaut stopped, and Lindsey Graham wants to work with them. Maybe hed be a decent Republican from Massachusetts or New York, but South Carolina can do better, and the nation needs us to do better. Thats why were going to replace Lindsey Graham in the spring.
This major conservative endorsement is not the first for Brights campaign, who also has the support of the National Republican Liberty Caucus, Gun Rights Across America and Congressman Steve Stockman.

Down goes Lindsey...
> Down goes Lindsey...
Not so fast. Obummer has probably assembled hordes of illegals in buses set to descend on the polling places at the last second or will have the electronic votes manipulated and miscounted. We almost need a nationwide Battle of Athens moment where we can see how the electronic voting machines are being manipulated or ar least someone in the know who has the guts to step foward and tell the truth.
I've been following Bright for the past 4-6 months and he seems like the real deal and while his election won't change the senate count, it will add courage to the conservative side.
May the national press begin including the South Carolina Senate seat in its articles on heavily contested GOP primaries!

If I were Graham (thankfully I am not) I would be looking for a nice calm island somewhere to live out the reset of my days. He certainly is not welcome in Carolina any longer.
Nothing like HG coming in with the crux of the issue ...
Thanks a ton .can you imagine the landscape politically if McConnell and Lindsey go down????
It would be like a freshening wind across the plains .
Is Common Sense alive and well in South Carolina?
Graham must be replaced
Not to mention that you didn’t excerpt a thing. The entire press release at the link is posted here.
Perhaps Linda will officially join Rev Wright/Obama’s “Down Low” club?
When does all this electing take place?
and maybe I think it’s a good idea if folks go to Bright’s website and join the fight to remove Lindsey.
Others might think technical little microbial FR protocols are more important than saving the country. I feel sorry for such left brained type B bureaucratic paramecia.
Primary June 10 - runoff scheduled now for just two weeks later, but there are lawsuits being filed to force SC to add time between primary and run off ..Ted Cruz used his 60 day window extremely well probably needed 30-45 days of that window.
This is awesome news! Thanks for pinging me!!
Let’s go, Lee! Thanks for the update, Edmund. Fight the good fight!
Then why did the original poster click the excerpt button to make the excerpt notice appear?
Any chance that Graham may switch parties or run as in independent if he loses the primary? Being a sore loser sort of runs through the veins with these types.
