COLUMBIA State Sen. Lee Bright took frequent shots at U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham at a forum in Columbia on Friday, criticizing the Republican incumbent for negotiating with countries with ties to U.S. enemies and saying if voters do not make a change in the June 10 GOP primary, We will be in another war, we will have amnesty I guarantee it.
Later, as candidates took turns on the forums stage, Graham countered those claims indirectly in answering a question on his approach to using military force overseas: If you dont have partnerships, then youre going to have to use military force all the time.
Five of the six Republicans who Graham is facing in his bid to win a third term participated in the forum, sponsored by the conservative Palmetto Family Council, at the University of South Carolina: Columbia pastor Det Bowers, Sen. Bright of Spartanburg, Easley businessman Richard Cash, Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor and Charleston PR executive Nancy Mace. Columbia attorney Benjamin Dunn did not attend.
Democrat Jay Stamper of Columbia did attend, saying he was glad to be there. Its supremely ironic that Im here, Stamper said to laughs. This is one of the few opportunities I have to speak out.

Was he there to endorse Graham?
All SC people know is “Lindsey”, “Lindsey”. I imagine even Fritz Hollings is for Lindsey now.
