Lindsey Grahamís reelection chances are looking slim
glennbeck.com ^ | 2/27/14

Posted on 02/28/2014 5:13:44 AM PST by cotton1706

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to South Carolina Republican State Senator Lee Bright, who is challenging incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in the upcoming U.S. Senate race. The primary is set to take place June 10, and the goal is to force a runoff by keeping Sen. Graham from reaching the 50% threshold. The numbers are in Bright’s favor across several polls, and he spoke to Glenn about the important differences between him and the incumbent, why he feels the need to go to Washington, and more.

“Well, we all know that Lindsay Graham is a nightmare. Vote for Lee Bright. That’s all, everybody. That’s all Lee has to say,” Glenn said. “But Lee is here to say a little bit more than that. The goal in South Carolina is to keep Lindsay Graham under 50% in the June 10 primary because then there would be a runoff… and he’s currently under 50% in the polls I have seen.”

To begin, Glenn asked Bright to lay out how he differs from Sen. Graham. One of the major differences involves the education system.

“There’s so many. Actually, I cosponsored the bill to stop Common Core in South Carolina. We’ve been fighting that for quite a while now. I mean it was an experiment by some leftist folks that put some money into a plan, and I called it a scheme to try and take over the education system and it was done very cleverly because it’s not actually a federal program but the federal money is involved. So they put $1.2 billion out there to encourage the states to acquiesce because that’s what they often do.”

If Glen Beck is the source there is a bit of wishful thinking.

Good.

May he have a bunch of company joining him in the “Former Senators Club”.

Good news. At the very least, these challenges drain resources from RINO donors.

I’d love to see Boehner and McConnell taken down, but Lindsey ranks right up there.

that’s what I was going to say, too. Beck as a source is a pretty good guide that the truth is the opposite of the headline.

Well I would hardly call them “slim”. Maybe a bit more complicated. But here’s hoping.

I love good news in the morning. This is *the* second most important election of 2014 -- with Bevin replacing McConnell being the first. Full speed ahead South Carolina!

I’m surprised he didn’t couch this as earth shattering news to be announced later

I like blaze but beck is simply nutty and all over the place

And willfully ignorant about race and gay crap

I’m surprised Levin made peace with him

I wish Wilcow were Beck

I see he’s bellowing with McSatin now over Ben Gazi.

Both of them are fake, phony, frauds.

Uh oh..... Watch it Mr. Bright. You will make Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn mad at you because they hate Ted Cruz.

Rand Paul needs to be removed from the Top Row. He has endorsed and is actively working for Mitch McConnell. He is a political whore.
