The race is over!
Email ^ | April 17, 2014 | Nancy Mace

The race is over!!!

Haven’t you heard? Lindsey Graham is going back to the US Senate!

If you read tales from the New York Times and watched MSNBC lately that is what you may assume.

However, here on the ground in South Carolina, reality for the senior senator is very different. Recently, public polls have shown Lindsey Graham with less than 50% support from members in his own party, and all of his high priced campaign ads are falling on deaf ears with conservative voters who know the truth about Senator Graham.

The fact is voters are wise to the beltway games that establishment republicans play. Politicians like Graham vote with Harry Reid and the go along to get along crowd in DC, and then call on the special interests to fund their campaign season makeover to sell them as one of "the folks" every election year.

But Graham can’t raise enough to cover up ALL his liberal votes:

• Voted to bail out big banks - $700 billion

• Voted to confirm liberal justices to the Supreme Court (Kagan, Sotomayor)

• Voted to continue debate on Obama's anti-gun agenda

• Voted to increase taxes by $600 billion

• Supported arming rebel elements in Syria including radical jihadists

• Voted for amnesty without securing our borders

• Proponent of NSA spying program

We cannot allow the Washington, DC political machine to control this race and dictate the outcome with the help of the elites in the media. The current power structure believes they can simply tell us how to vote, and, in turn, we will buy what they are selling. NO MORE. We are here to take our country back and return to the Constitution and commonsense conservative government.

We can't do it alone though.

In liberty,

Nancy Mace

I certainly hope she’s right. I’ve been trying to find video of the debate they had yesterday but it seems to be nowhere.

Signs popped upstate here for Cash, the only problem is the Elect Cash signs have “replace Lindsay Graham” at the bottom of them. I think that’s a no no in campaigning. The no no part having your opponents name on your campaign sign.

I haven’t actually looked at the sign recently, but what I described is the best to my recollection.

Are there electronic voting machines in SC? If so, then polls don’t really matter they just fix the vote. That’s how Reid stays in office even though he’s wildly unpopular in Nevada.

Keep up the good work and get rid of him.

Lindsey Graham should be the poster boy for supporting the Convention Of States. Repealing the 17th amendment eliminates the Lindsey Graham types for good! The 17th amendment is THE ONLY reason people like him and John McCain, Harry Reid and so on even exist.

Graham for the win.

Similarly, it seems that Pryor in Arkansas has taken a slight lead over Cotton.

Landreau is polling better in Louisiana.

At least, according to the media.

==

The Senate may not change majority rule. Many Republicans thought they had it in 2012, and didn’t. Same may be happening again in 2014.

Incumbency is always difficult to run against.

News coverage and fair publicity for candidates other than the Incumbent are hard to find in any of the SCLSM for this primary election.

Multiple primary challengers are usually good for the incumbent. Not in South Carolina where if the aggregate challenge vote keeps the incumbent from achieving 50% of the total, then he is forced into a runoff. Most of the challengers to Flimsey Tinkerbelle have already signed a pact to support the eventual frontrunner.

Flimsey is in trouble no matter how much GOP-E money he gets.

The ONLY hope any challenger has is a GOTV effort.

Democrats do it with fraud and absentee ballots.

Yes they have and it received precious little news coverage when it happened and is rarely mentioned on-air or in any of the SCLSM.

Give it up. All of these challenges to Republican incumbents in the primaries are going down to defeat. Even in Mississippi where there was a chance, the Barbour Machine has taken charge and Cochran will win. Time to suck it up and concentrate on beating Democrats.

Yes, but in my precinct, the machines are a hybrid blend of old, old electronics (behind the curtain) and manual tending by poll workers. I wonder about some the manual tending often.

If so, then polls don’t really matter they just fix the vote.

I do not respond to any polls since I learned about the manipulations of methodology from first-hand observance of University of Chicago polling of WNC rural residents in the late 1970s.

Conservatives have had years to become disgusted with Graham, and no expensive, last minute TV ads to persuade them otherwise are going to have much effect.

There are a handful of very good candidates running against Graham, and all but Mace have promised to support whoever gets in the run off with Graham, prompting some to ask what is Mace’ motivation if she’ll likely support Graham over anyone but her?????

I think the part at the end asking for donations is what wasn’t wanted.

I can see where if that was allowed there would be nothing but stuff like that posted. FR would turn into a billboard for those collecting donations.

I’m not sure, but I think I read that here. That’s why I just pinged the mod.

Incumbency is always difficult to run against.

Even harder to beat a voting machine, that your opponent controls.

Voting machines and absentee ballots are a tyrants best tools along with a compliant media, who could doubt the outcome of elections.

I asked her about this yesterday and this is her email response this morning:

Hi R2z,

Thank you for your question. I would be doing a disservice to the thousands of people who have raised their hand to support my campaign if I were to wave the flag of surrender in the middle of a fight. I cannot think about, let alone even talk about, losing.

I appreciate your question, and I hope I can earn your vote (and maybe some gas money too) by our primary on June 10th!

Sincerely,

Nancy

I don't think any of the other candidates who took the pledge "waved a flag of surrender". They're still campaigning the same as before the pledge.

If he voted to continue the debate, that would have been a vote to support the filibuster, which the author should have been happy with. I honestly don’t know if he supported the filibuster or not, I was just pointing out a little inconsistency.

IOW, if he voted to “continue the debate,” he actually voted the way I would have preferred.

I agree on one condition: If he actually voted to continue debate on the specific gun control legislation this past year. As I said, I honestly don’t know how he voted on that bill (I was plenty PO’ed at how my own GOPe Senators voted at the time), and the letter from this Mace person isn’t specific enough to say. She could have meant he voted to keep the larger debate going, not just the specific bill.

Regarding "...this Mace person...", thank you for the opening...

http://nancymace.org/

Nancy Mace is not a politician; in fact she has never run for political office. She’s a wife, mother and small business owner.

She is someone who is passionate about her country and she is someone who is seriously concerned about the direction it is going. Nancy is the daughter of retired Army Brigadier General Emory Mace and school teacher Anne Mace, Ph.D. Nancy was born at Fort Bragg, N.C., while her father was a Major stationed with the 82nd Airborne. Many know Nancy as the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina. She is also the author of In the Company of Men: A Woman at The Citadel, which world-renowned author Pat Conroy described as “The best book about The Citadel ever written.”

Nancy knows all too well the kinds of sacrifices our military and their families make. She moved 10 times in her first 13 years of life. She saw many parts of the country and met people from all walks of life. Her constant traveling as an Army brat gave her an enormous appreciation for the selflessness of our service members. Nancy admires, from firsthand experience, what our military and their families go through to protect our freedom and preserve liberty.

AN UNLIKELY STORY Nancy is from a family of achievers. Her father was an US Army general and two of her siblings graduated from West Point. While Nancy is proud to be part of such a rich tradition, she often jokes that she did not receive the same gene as her siblings. Nancy freely admits that she found school very challenging.

While Nancy may not have been the best student, she did enjoy swimming and running and embraced athletics as a release from the daily grind. But without the best track record in high school or a clear idea of her direction in life, Nancy began taking courses at a community college upon high school graduation. Nancy eventually became an administrative assistant for a real estate developer, which she credits for seeding the love of business and technology that she maintains to this day. This period in life also taught Nancy a little about life and helped reinforce the work ethic instilled in her by her parents and built a level of confidence in her that she still draws on today.

She also credits this time in her life with bringing her closer to God and finding salvation through Him.

Eventually Nancy decided she would focus on earning a four-year degree. A new and meaningful chapter in her life was about to begin.

THE CITADEL In the summer of 1996, The Citadel opened its doors to women and Nancy took a bold step—she simply hopped in her car and drove to The Citadel to pick up an application. The next day, she submitted it.

A few days later, Nancy was accepted as one of the first women ever to enter the Citadel’s ranks as a “knob.” Nancy took the plunge and joined the Corps of Cadets, eager to follow in her father’s footsteps.

Nancy graduated as the first woman from The Citadel’s Corps of Cadets in 1999 with magna cum laude honors. She earned a degree in Business. Nancy eventually pursued a master’s degree in journalism and mass communication from the University of Georgia’s School of Journalism, focusing on public relations.

SMALL BUSINESS OWNER Nancy’s first job out of college was with Accenture, one of the world’s largest management-consulting firms. As a consultant, her clients have included everyone from start-ups to multi-billion dollar, publicly-traded entities representing a plethora of industries.

Nancy married her husband Curtis in 2004. When she had her first child, Miles Emory, Nancy decided to become a stay-at-home mom. During this time she began working on a few public relations and marketing projects to stay engaged. Before her second child, daughter Ellison Anne was born, Nancy started a small consulting business: The Mace Group. The Mace Group has provided public relations and marketing to companies of all sizes and from multiple industries over the years. Some of her recent political clients have included Senator Tim Scott, Congressman Mick Mulvaney and SC State Senator Tom Davis.

An accomplished businesswoman, Citadel graduate, proud South Carolinian and most important to her—a wife and mother—Nancy resides in Charleston with her family.

“The only way to change Washington is to change who we send to Washington,” says Mace, adding “Washington is out of touch, voters are frustrated. They’re looking for someone authentic.”

Mace is also a board member of The Citadel School of Business and past board member of Childspring International.

She has written to all South Carolina voters, "While I remain passionate about the promise of our country, I’m very worried about the direction we are headed. This summer I spent time listening to friends and neighbors throughout the state. And I heard a common theme: South Carolinians believe Washington is out of touch and that Washington thinks it knows better than the people. Many have lost faith in our political system and simply do not trust this government.

This lack of trust is palpable in the voices of concerned voters all over the state. And I share their concern.

I believe career politicians in DC are unwilling to make hard decisions about our nation’s future.

You will almost always find South Carolina’s senior senator on the other side when conservative republicans have stood for the constitution, for smaller government, for border security, against Obamacare, against amnesty, against liberal judges, against tax increases and against reckless spending. It’s not that he is a bad person, it’s that his policies are wrong for America.

But I have not lost all hope and I don’t believe the people of South Carolina have either.

South Carolina has a rich history of sending conservative leaders to Washington, just like former Sen. Jim DeMint and now Sen. Tim Scott. My hope is to continue that tradition.

I believe America is at a tipping point. As Republicans we must decide whether we are another party in favor of big government or to change course and elect leaders who will stand with conviction and restore the principles of limited government outlined in our constitution. As your next Senator, I will always be a voice for liberty, and I will always stand against the oppressive hand of the federal government.

We will not change our nation’s capitol by sending the same people back to DC year after year. We must elect principled leaders who are willing to make tough decisions.

So while I am humbled by the enormity of the task before us. I am heartened by the support of many people who are ready for a new generation of conservative leadership.

We can only change Washington if we change who we send to Washington. America deserves better. South Carolina deserves better.

My family and yours, deserve better. That’s why I’m in this race."

Pretty good boiler-plate. Is she any good? Does she have a chance? Most importantly, will she help chip away enough of Graham’s votes to drive him below 50%? If so, and she is not the second place finisher, will she get behind whoever that is to help defeat Graham in the run-off?

(I should mention I’m not a big fan of politicians who say they aren’t politicians. If she’s running, then she is by definition a “politician.”)

I hear ya. Unfortunately, it usually takes a hard-nose wheeler-dealer to win a state-wide race for Senator in most states. I don’t know the lay of the land in SC. Being an “old” established state, I imagine that’s what it will take. At this stage of the game, when a run-off is required if Graham doesn’t get 50% of the vote, what matters is how much can be chipped away to force a run-off.

At this stage of the game, Cruz in TX didn’t have a snowball’s chance in Heck, but in the end he defeated the GOPe candidate, then the Rat. I’d love to see that in SC, but I don’t know enough to know which comer to root for. I live in AZ, home of Graham’s Master.
