AIKEN, S.C. (AP) - Five of the six Republicans running against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham are meeting in a debate in Aiken.
The Aiken Republican Club is sponsoring Wednesdays debate, which will take place after the clubs luncheon in downtown Aiken.
A panel of reporters will ask questions of the candidates. Those scheduled to appear at the event are Columbia pastor Det Bowers, Spartanburg County state Sen. Lee Bright, Upstate businessman Richard Cash, Orangeburg lawyer Bill Connor and Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace.
Graham will not attend the debate.
Graham is seeking a third term in the Senate. All his Republican opponents say he isnt conservative enough for South Carolina and tries too hard to compromise with Democrats.
The primary is June 10.

Well, I certainly hope ALL OF THEM spend 100% of their time attacking Little Lindsey Graham and 0% of their time attacking each other! Let’s have or form no more conservative circular firing squads!!
I am not a fan of Linda, but it is brilliant that he not show up. If he were to say anything stupid or even out of context, it would be over for her. Better the story he didn’t show up. Since only a few percent of South Carolina will even watch and know Linda didn’t show up, it is a win for her. Get rid of Lindsay Graham South Carolina. However, he seems to be making moves that could help him.
is it true that Democrats can vote in the Republican primary? If so, Graham is a shu-in.
Yes, but then they can't vote in the democrat primary, only one or the other.
State Sen. Lee Bright was also going to participate but the Club was informed that he would not be able to attend.
I suspect he will line up enough
