Republican Liberty Caucus endorses U.S. Senate candidate Lee Bright against Lindsey Graham


Today the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Lee Bright against Sen. Lindsey Graham.

The press conferences will be held in GreenvilleColumbia, and Charleston.

Lee Bright will be speaking at each and will be available to talk to voters and the press.

According to Fitsnews.com, "U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's campaign is said to be in "meltdown mode" based on internal polling done in the wake of his conflicted votes on Obamacare last week."

Clemson political science professor Dave Woodard conducted a poll recently and found only 31 percent of South Carolina's Republicans plan to vote to re-elect Graham, regardless of who else was in the race.

Last week the Greenville County GOP, the largest and most influential party in the state, joined other county parties to officially censure Senator Graham. The censure resolution cites 29 points where Graham is said to have strayed from or violated the GOP platform, sided with Democrats, and openly ridiculed members of his own party.
