The satirical news program “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Monday night tried to find the most conservative candidate in South Carolina’s U.S. Senate primary race.
Appearing on the segment were GOP challenger Bill Connor, former U.S. Representative Bob Inglis, who is backing incumbent Lindsey Graham and a pair of Bright supporters, Jeff and Larry.
The final decision in the conservative-off was based on answers to a Rorschach test. Connor’s answer of “patriotism” was bested by a Lee Bright supporter’s reply of “Chick-fil-A.”
Graham was eliminated early from the race after Inglis was the only person without a copy of the U.S. Constitution in his pocket. He countered that he could look it up on his iPhone.
A recent poll by Wenzel Strategies is showing Graham below the 50 percent mark which will trigger a run off in South Carolina.
