    Former Atlanta resident Nancy Mace, the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, is back in her home state and working for presidential candidate Donald Trump. Mace, a mother of two who has been working in real estate since running against US Sen. Lindsey Graham last year, made the announcement via Facebook. “It is clearer today than ever, Americans want a leader who is unafraid to ‘tell it like it is.’ And let’s face it, Mr. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, and has the courage to take a stand when others cave to the establishment’s every whim. And...

    Between 2007 and 2011, there were over 43,000 bankruptcies just in South Carolina. That number grows substantially when you include businesses that failed or closed-up even if they did not end in a technical bankruptcy. Unfortunately, my own business was one of them.

    One Senate aide blamed Corker’s spotlight-grabbing role as Cruz’s foil on weak Republican leadership. “Because our leadership has not led for a number of months because of electoral politics, Senator McCain and Senator Graham and Senator Corker have sort of emerged as sort of de facto leaders in a leadership vacuum,” he says. “I like Senator Cornyn, I like Senator McConnell, I respect them, I know their colleagues respect them, but in fairness there just has not been a whole lot of direction, there’s really been no strategy.” “It might not work,” he adds of Cruz and Lee’s efforts (we...

    A primary challenger to South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said the incumbent Senator may be vulnerable in 2014 because his embrace of the Senate's immigration bill has angered South Carolinians who are against amnesty for illegal immigrants. Nancy Mace, who is the first female graduate of The Citadel, appeared on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 and said it was unfair to legal immigrants to award those whose first step was breaking the law. "Amnesty does not sell down here," Mace said. "People are very upset with it." The 35-year-old wife, mother, and small-business owner said,...
  • Polls shows likely GOP senate takeover in 2014

    The examiner ^ | 9/9/13 | Dean Chambers
    A new Landmark/Rosetta Stone poll of the upcoming South Carolina senate primary, released last night, shows incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham to be facing a strong primary challenge in his bid for reelection next year. While Graham polls at 42 percent, that is well below the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff. Should a runoff take place, he would run against the second place candidate, and if most of that other 58 percent unified behind the challenger, Graham could find himself being fired by Republican primary voters in his bid for another six-year term as South Carolina's Senior Senator. Aside...
  • Burn! Sen. Lindsey Graham, ‘Leader of the Surrender Caucus.’

    CHARLESTON, S.C.—Talk about Southern hospitality. Famed Democratic strategist Pat Caddell swept into South Carolina on Monday night, blistered Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, and then insulted the people who put him in office. And he was rewarded for his bravado with a round of hearty applause and laughter. “Lindsey Graham is the effective leader of the surrender caucus of the Republican Party,” Cadell proclaimed during a fiery speech before the Charleston Meeting, a monthly gathering of conservative activists hosted at the swanky Harbour Club in downtown Charleston. “And I don’t know how he works with the public in South Carolina, but...

    Lindsey Graham’s support for global warming restrictions is taking center stage affecting the incumbent U.S. Senator’s bleak poll numbers in his bid to survive a primary challenge in the 2014 elections. Graham is well below the 50 percent threshold in a recent poll of likely Republican primary voters in South Carolina, conducted by Landmark Communications and Rosetta Stone Communications. Only 42 percent of likely Republican primary voters said they support the incumbent Graham. Graham’s poor support among Republican voters is remarkable considering Graham’s primary opponents have relatively little name recognition throughout the Palmetto state. Graham’s primary opponents are hammering the...

    Republican Senate primary challengers are looking to use Syria as wedge to gain traction in their bids to unseat GOP incumbents. [WATCH VIDEO] Against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), nearly every primary challenger has come out early and loud in opposition to military engagement in Syria. And nearly every senator facing a contested primary — aside from Graham, who has expressed support — is still undecided, a week after President Obama said he’d go to Congress for approval. The vote is one that could provide some much-needed...

    Brietbart ^ | September 8 | Matthew Boyle
    Ten months out from his primary election against three different Tea Party candidates, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has dropped to below 50 percent in the polls, meaning he is particularly vulnerable to a runoff strategy conservatives have employed against him. Graham received just 42 percent of support from likely South Carolina GOP voters in an Aug. 25 poll of 500 likely GOP voters conducted by Landmark Communications and Rosetta Stone Communications, reports. “These numbers should be of concern to the Graham campaign. The senator fails to reach 50% of the vote against any of his opponents,” Rosetta Stone Communications...

    Senator weighs pushing for unpopular missile strike as his re-election opponents wait in the wings. As one of the leading advocates for bipartisan immigration reform, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., had already firmly affixed himself to one cause deeply unpopular with conservatives heading into a re-election year. [POLL: Most Americans Oppose Military Strike in Syria] Now as a war-weary Congress weighs a military strike in Syria, he finds himself championing another policy that risks antagonizing the base. ... Next to Sen. John McCain, there's no more forceful and visible advocate for a muscular response... Nonetheless, as he seeks a third term...

    At an invitation-only breakfast for establishment Republican types in Mount Pleasant, S.C. this week, Graham said that if America doesn’t take military action against the regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, Iran will acquire a nuclear weapon by the end of 2014. “I believe that if we get Syria wrong, within six months – and you can quote me on this – there will be a war between Iran and Israel over their nuclear program,” Graham said, according to U.S. News and World Report. But the fear-mongering didn’t stop there. Graham says this conflict will come home to – of...

    War Hawks are getting so desperate that they are using fear tactics in order to motivate constituents to support the war in Syria. Syria and Iran maybe allies, but Sen. Lindsay Graham's analysis of their connection is simplistic and misguided. According to the senator, if the US does not intervene in Syria, Iran will not take the US seriously and will have a nuclear weapon by the end of 2014. If Iran gets nuclear weapons, such weapons will end up in the hands of terrorists. He ended his analysis by describing the fear-inducing-if-unrealistic situation of a nuclear bomb dropping on...

    CHAPIN, S.C. - This year's Chapin Labor Day Parade is hosting a few special guests. U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is making an appearance at Monday's 34th annual event. Oscar Mayer says one of its Wienermobile is also taking place in the parade, which makes a one-mile route around Chapin's historic district. The day's activities include a talent contest and a gospel concert, as well as arts and crafts vendors and a food court. Chapin's parade often attracts a number of politicians, especially in election years when it marks the unofficial home stretch of the campaign.
  • Politico: Tea Party Challenge to GOP Senators an 'Expensive Headache'

    In his Saturday Playbook email, Politico’s Mike Allen defended GOP establishment Senators like Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Lamar Alexander and others facing Tea Party challengers as up against nothing more than an “expensive headache” they will defeat. Allen, a denizen of D.C. political establishment, highlighted two news stories to make his point: One from the New York Times, and the other from the Associated Press. The New York Times’ Jennifer Steinhauser reported with Jonathan Weisman on the front page of the Gray Lady on Saturday that “[d]espite their careful efforts, some of the best-known and most influential Republicans...

    LAKE WYLIE, S.C. — Some of the early shots in the Republican primary battle against Senator Lindsey Graham have been fired from this tiny community on the northern border of the state where the Civil War began. Mr. Graham's challengers so far in the Republican primary campaign include Nancy Mace, the first woman to graduate from the Citadel. A small group called Carolina Conservatives United, one of dozens organized loosely under the flag of limited government, low taxes and strict adherence to the Constitution, sent out images last week of a milk carton bearing Mr. Graham’s face and asked Gov....

    Red Statements recognizes the continuance of Lindsay Graham as senator from South Carolina is intolerable. We here in the Palmetto State need a representative who reflects our conservative values and who does not “go along to get along’ or wants the job to improve their personal desires. South Carolina needs Lee Bright. Lee Bright is not a follower, he is a leader. Glenn Beck’s, The Blaze asks if Lee Bright is the next Ted Cruz. The answer is a resounding yes. Bright has a 100% score from the South Carolina Club For Growth and a 92% conservative rating from the...

    State Sen. Lee Bright announced his candidacy Tuesday for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate, calling incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham "a community organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood." "During the (congressional) recess, when I would hope that he would be around folks in South Carolina, getting their feelings on so many issues that affect their lives, he has instead chosen to take his time to be a community organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood and that concerns me," Bright told supporters in a conference call. "He needs to spend more time listening to what the brothers in South Carolina...

    I am primarying Senator Lindsey Graham, he needs to go. As a South Carolinian, I am thankful for the service he has performed for our country and our state in the Senate, but he has demonstrated more and more every year that he is out of touch with Conservative voters. From his criticism of Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster in support of civil liberties to siding against America as part of the Gang of Eight amnesty crafters, Graham has made it blatantly clear what many of us have known for years. Lindsey Graham is no conservative.Help me fight his well-filled war...

    Some of the GOP's most senior senators made it on the National Journal's list of "Top 10 lawmakers who could lose a primary next year." Minority leader Mitch McConnell, South Carolina's Lindsey Graham and Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi have been officially marked as "in danger" by the website, along with Idaho Republican Rep Mike Simpson and Democrat Brian Schatz from Hawaii. McConnell, the 71-year-old Senate stalwart who entered the chamber in 1985, faces tea partier Matt Bevin in the primary, with Alison Lundergan Grimes running as a Democrat. His campaign manager Jesse Benton has boasted "there is absolutely no risk...

    Greenville County (S.C.) Republicans have introduced a resolution condemning liberal U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for acting in a manner ”fundamentally inconsistent with the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party.” The resolution – introduced to a cheering crowd earlier this week at a GOP executive committee meeting – blasts Graham on a number of fronts, including his votes to confirm liberal, pro-Obamacare Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, his support of amnesty for illegal aliens and his backing of U.S. President Barack Obama’s “cap and trade” energy tax hike. In fact the document lists nearly thirty examples of...
