DEMOCRATIC SENATE CANDIDATE VOWS TO WIN NOMINATION
Jay Stamper a controversial U.S. Senate candidate from Washington State who had been openly feuding with his party leadership went for months as the only Democrat looking to challenge U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.). Liberal on social issues but claiming a fiscally conservative streak, Stamper presented an interesting potential contrast to Graham who is socially conservative but fiscally liberal.
Last week, though, the Democrat establishment found a credible candidate to run against Stamper S.C. Sen. Brad Hutto (D-Orangeburg).
Hutto, a liberal trial lawyer, will be well-supported financially meaning Stamper has suddenly gone from the partys nominee-in-waiting to a serious underdog.
