    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is ready to show up Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying Tuesday he plans to take a DNA test to find out whether he has more Native American heritage than she does. “I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham told “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.” Graham said he would reveal the results on the show in a couple weeks.

    Another manufacturer is bringing jobs to Rock Hill. The South Carolina Department of Commerce announced Tuesday that Linde Hydraulics Corp. will invest $13.4 million and create more than 60 jobs when it opens a new production site in Rock Hill. Linde is a global hydraulic and electronic drive system maker. “Linde Hydraulics is the latest industry leader to select our state for its operations, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to our dynamic business community,” Gov. Henry McMaster said in a statement. The new 67,200-square-foot site at 1679 Overview Drive in Rock Hill should be up and...

    The former talk show host was slammed on social media Thursday for tweeting, "If you’re wondering why Republicans took a sick day today, it’s probably because it’s #NationalComingOutDay. Looking at you @LindseyGrahamSC." Many on social media were not amused and derided Handler’s joke as homophobic, tired, and lazy. “Not sure homophobic insults are the cleverest means of attacking opponents… Yikes.,” wrote one Twitter user. As for Graham -- he doesn't care what Handler has to say. "I don't think much about what she says at all," Graham told TMZ. "If she wants to live her life that way, that's up...

    Senator Lindsey Graham criticized Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and the Democratic Party on Wednesday for their behavior towards Brett Kavanaugh and their recent rhetoric during his appearance on “The Story” with Martha MacCallum. MacCallum began the conversation by showing the clip of Hillary Clinton saying there’s no room for civility in politics, which originally aired during a CNN interview on Tuesday. “I would say that if you think what happened to Brett Kavanaugh was civil, we have a definite different view of what civil means. Civil means that you do not destroy a good man because you want power. You...

    AFTER A 50-YEAR siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in last Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it. The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat. And the triumph is President Trump’s. To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high...

    Normally, when the weather begins to cool, stink bugs look for shelter. But in this case, the shorter days have likely promoted the critters to seek shelter in advance of cooler temperatures. “This is the time of year when these bugs start to look forward to shelter and move into people’s homes,” Benson said, adding the brown marmorated stink bugs — which were first reported in the United States in the 1990s and in South Carolina roughly six or seven years ago — “aggregate in large numbers in sheltered locations.”While it’s not an issue when these insects aggregate in a...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) challenged Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Sunday to name one person from President Donald Trump's list of potential Supreme Court justices that he finds acceptable. "This is a list that was compiled in November, but he actually put it out during the campaign," Graham told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace, as he held up the list. "Twenty something people on this list, asking Chuck Schumer, name five, name three, name one that would be okay with you." Schumer and fellow Democrats tried to pressure Trump and Republicans to withdraw then Supreme...

    South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham did not take kindly to a group of protesters who followed him to his car, yelling demeaning comments. The protesters were waiting outside of Graham’s Senate office building protesting Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The protesters ran from their position standing on the side of the road with “STOP KAVANAUGH” signs to harass the Senator on his way to his waiting car. The women yelled that Graham was “despicable” and needed to be “kicked out of office.” In response, Graham smiled and wondered aloud if the women were South Carolina voters. “We will...

    Jackson Cosko, who calls himself a “Democratic Political Professional” with cybersecurity expertise, is accused of crimes for allegedly doxing Republican Senators during the Brett Kavanaugh/Christine Blasey Ford hearings. The United States Capitol Police arrested the suspect who allegedly “posted private, identifying information (doxing) about one of more United States Senators to the internet,” a statement said. According to Legistorm, he worked for U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and previously worked for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA). A September 2018 letter from Sheila Jackson Lee (D -TX) identifies him as a staffer for her office.
