This is just a tip of the iceberg and I urge you to read more in the resolution. While you may not feel that you personally have a dog in this fight, you should be watching this race closely with your voices chiming in on a national level- because when he votes, although he speaks in representation of South Carolina, his votes will eventually effect your everyday life. We don’t need this Republican Senator who wears our uniform but plays on the other team!

Lindsey “Grahamnesty”, you, along with your other fellow moderates in elected positions all across our country, were not elected to go to Washington and jump in bed with the other side. You weren’t elected to do what is momentarily politically expedient. You weren’t elected to be the darling of the media who wait with baited breath as you decide your next sellout move. You were elected to represent your constituents and their best interests as a reflection of the values and principles that you ran on. This behavior reflects a deep rooted selfishness that has taken hold within both parties of the “ruling class” but is being put on public display within the Republican party because the Conservatives in our country are finally saying enough is enough!

There are several new challengers so far for this seat and we will be keeping an eye on this race for the long run but here are a couple of the current top contenders.

Nancy Mace, one of the first to throw her hat in the ring has not yet held public office- which some strongly believe is in her favor. She holds the accomplished title of the first female to graduate from the Citadel and is the author of In the Company of Men: A Woman at The Citadel. She is a small business owner, having founded a consulting business, The Mace Group. “The only way to change Washington is to change who we send to Washington,” says Mace, adding “Washington is out of touch, voters are frustrated. They’re looking for someone authentic.”

Lee Bright is another contender and just might be the one poised well enough with a strong enough Conservative record in the SC Senate since 2008 to take Graham down. He’s 100% pro-life and his record, thus far, backs up the claim since he has been a sponsor of the “Life Begins At Conception Act” for the last 3 years. The Club For Growth has also given Bright the title of “Taxpayer Hero’s In The Senate”- which he shares with only three others, along with receiving the highest score in the legislature graded by the Upstate Tea Party. His votes also show him exceptionally strong in regards to the Second Amendment as he was the lead sponsor for the Firearms Freedom Act and Constitutional Carry Bill. He’s also been a lead voice on the Freedom of Choice Healthcare bill (the ObamaCare opt out). To read more on him and his record in the Senate you can click here.

That being said, South Carolina has some great choices to replace this spineless excuse for a Republican. I think most of you will agree with me when I say that it’s time for this particular breed of RINOs to go extinct!
