Nancy Mace, first female graduate of the citadel, small business woman, will speak at Berkeley County GOP breakfast this Saturday to address her decision on SC's 2014 U.S. race against two-term incumbent Lindsey Graham. See Facebook event HERE.
In June, Mace told the Post,
"...I think that if anyone is going to primary an incumbent Senator they need to have a statewide grassroots network. They need to have a message that resonates with not only the one corner of the Republican Party, but all corners of the Republican Party whether you are a veteran, whether you covet the right to life, whether you are Second Amendment supporter, whether you are a tea party person, or a liberty person, or if you are just a regular Republican who is a patriot. It's going to take someone who can bring folks together. No one that I can tell at this point can raise the amount of money that Senator Graham has in his war chest right now, but I don't believe that it takes this kind of resources to win a US Senate race in this State. At some point it reaches saturation level and I don't think it's necessarily won on TV yet, I think it's won on the ground in grass roots."

UPDATE: On Saturday, South Carolina businesswoman Nancy Mace officially announced her campaign to challenge Sen. Lindsey Graham in the Republican primary for US Senate next year. Mace is the first female graduate of the state's storied military school, The Citadel. She told supporters she is running because Washington is too big and out of touch.
"We cannot change Washington unless we change who we send to Washington," Mace said in a statement. Mace owns a public relations company in Charleston. She is the second challenger to Graham, joining businessman Richard Cash in the campaign against Graham.
