It’s funny that any Democrat would think that they could present a challenge to Lindsey Graham’s South Carolina Senate seat in 2020, but I guess that is why South Carolina Democratic Party chairman, Jaime Harrison, chose to announce his bid to do so… in comic book fashion.

In a comic book-themed video posted on Facebook, Harrison highlights his humble roots in Orangeburg, S.C., and slammed Graham as “a guy who will say anything to stay in office.”

In the video announcement of his candidacy, Harrison tore at Graham’s shifting stance on President Donald Trump, whom he called a “bigot” who was “not fit to be president of the United States” when the two faced off for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Now, as you know, Graham has since been one of Trump’s most consistent defenders.

“Lindsey Graham can’t lead us in any direction because he traded his moral compass for petty political gain,” Harrison says in the video. “He’s forgotten about the people he represents.”

Who Is Jaimie Harrison?

Harrison, who was the state Democratic party’s first black chairman and served as an aide to Rep. James Clyburn, highlighted his “origin” story of being born to a teen mother, raised by his grandparents, and his education at Yale University and Georgetown Law School.

Upon hearing of his challenge to the incumbent Senator, The National Republican Senate Committee slammed Harrison as a “looney liberal.”

“Harrison is a looney liberal who was hand-picked to run by radical Washington Democrats,” NRSC spokesperson Nathan Brand told CBS News. “Lindsey Graham is one of the most popular U.S. Senators in the country because South Carolina voters know that he has delivered results and has been a tireless fighter for Palmetto State values.”

If Harrison were to somehow successfully unseat Graham, he would be the first Democrat from South Carolina to be elected to the Senate since 1998.

  1. I think Lindsey Graham is a GREAT Senator! He has the smarts & good sense to fight for what is right!! Now more than ever ALL Americans MUST support the President of the USA. Why are there so MANY stupid, irresponsible, idiots in the democrat party? There are several of these idiots, Schiff, Maxine Waters, Ilhan Omar, Tlabib, Pelosi, just to name a few should be impeached! NOT the greatest President of the USA I’ve seen in decades..

  2. Yeah, ‘Left,’ er, Right!

    That the Demo Rats are running around terrified of being finally ratted out for their high crimes against We the People is NOT encouraging about the future safety of We the People – these criminals and their ultra-wealthy backers will stoop to any crime and capital offense to secure their take over of our nation, and the globe.

    When Trump, as a private, concerned citizen with legit fears that these bastards are determined to ruin his family’s estate, and he made the call for a legit Prez to work with the few remaining honest government and military employees, he knew full well this is a battle to save our heads and nation from the iron-fisted grip of the global crime cabal running global socialism and all banking.

    We’d best get these jack-asses out of our hair forever, or simply bend back and kiss our own asses bye.

  3. Harrison is 100% correct. “Lindsey Graham can’t lead us in any direction because he traded his moral compass for petty political gain”. He traded his dignity for blind allegiance to a man who cares for no one but himself.

  4. mr. Graham has alienated a lot of voters because he reversed his stance on guns after he was elected. not good
