Lindsey Graham Agrees to Debate GOP Primary Challengers

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will face his primary challengers in a June debate, as reported by The State newspaper.

South Carolina Educational Television announced Thursday that Graham will participate in the event, set to take place at 7 p.m. on June 7.

Six Republicans are set to challenge Graham in his bid for reelection. It would be Graham’s third term in office.

Graham’s declared opponents are: Det Bowers, a Columbia pastor, Lee Bright, a state senator, Richard Cash, Bill Connor, Benjamin Dunn, and Nancy Mace.

In the run-up to the 2014 election, Graham has been under constant fire from more constitutionally minded members of his own party. Given his less than conservative comportment in Congress, it’s little wonder that he isn’t a shoo-in for a third term.

Last summer, a coalition of Tea Party-affiliated groups from across South Carolina approved a 29-point condemnation of Graham, calling for his replacement with someone committed to the Constitution.

In a copy of the document provided to The New American, Graham’s sins against the Constitution are enumerated:

• Arming Syrian rebels with known ties to Al-Qaeda

• Approving the National Security Agency’s continuing surveillance of innocent Americans

• Calling for the use of drones to target American citizens

• Sending substantial aid to Egypt

• Subordinating American sovereignty to the United Nations

• Voting to continue sending billions to foreign governments worldwide

• Confirming President Obama’s Supreme Court nominees

• Voting for bank bailouts

• Unconstitutionally infringing on the Second Amendment

• Advocacy of amnesty for illegal aliens

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the indictment is that it isn’t just some collection of cheap shots; it includes video proof of the incumbent’s ferocious infidelity to his oath of office.

Earlier this month, FreedomWorks published its compilation of the “Top 10 Bad Votes by Lindsey Graham.” The list reads like a wish list written by President Obama and fulfilled by Graham:
