    So tell me about the SC primary challengers to Lindsey Graham

    Lindsey Graham deserves a primary challenge. He has several million in the bank, and surely will receive a lot more from those who want to keep him fighting for amnesty (assuming he doesn’t pull it off prior to the election).

    There now are two people are in the race.

    Today, Nancy Mace announced:

    Richard Cash already is in the race:

    If I’ve learned anything, it’s that outsiders have a hard time understanding South Carolina politics.  And what seems to be, often is not.

    So tell me about these two challengers. And whether there will be others. And whether they can win.

    The best thing to oust Grahamnesty would be for a hotly contested Dem primary to avoid the crossover.

    Jeff Duncan who beat Cash in D3 has turned out to be a conservative rock star. 100% FreedomWorks and Heritage Action ratings. He is just overshadowed by the awesomeness of Trey Gowdy in neighboring D4. The Greenville County GOP voted to censure the outgoing state Chairman… So lets just say the upstate leans heavy libertarian. Radio ads here on talk radio are decidedly not favorable to the incumbent. Nancy Mace has already been meeting with local clubs like the GSP Republican Women and SC Liberty. If she can stay on par with $$ should do well in this area. Columbia is RINO central. The coast will be the wild card, but she is from Charleston. Here is hoping.

    I’m in for $100.00.

    South Carolina primary rules require winner to have at least 50% of the vote. If Whimsey only gets 49%, he will have to win a run-off election against the 2nd place finisher in the primary. Additional candidates do not split the vote but rather combine to reduce the likelyhood of 1st place finisher getting 50% + and causing a run-off. The more, the merrier.
