Lindsey Graham's No-longer Safe Re-election Bid Print E-mail

Ablip Graham.jpgU.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R.-S.C.) may no longer have a safe incumbent seat when he runs for re-election. He could face some up-and-coming GOP challengers in the primary race, which could include: Gov. Nikki Haley, U.S. Rep. Trey Gundy and state Sen. Tom Davis.

NPR reports that, "Republican senators who have shown moderate leanings have been hit with primary challenges from the right recently, and while no serious challenger has emerged yet in South Carolina, there are a whole lot of people hoping one does."

Tom Davis, a Republican state senator in South Carolina said, "there are some legitimate concerns to be asked about Benghazi … (and) Chuck Hagel. That being said, I do think it is fair to say that there has been a conscious effort on the part of Sen. Graham to elevate his role in those debates."

According to NPR, "Davis says that masks votes Graham has taken that conflict with small-government ideals. Graham voted for the bank bailout, once worked for climate change legislation and voted for the recent fiscal cliff deal that allowed taxes to rise on the wealthiest Americans."

Davis added, "all of those things have caused individuals to wonder whether or not (Graham) is representative of the type of conservative or the type of Republican that we need in Washington D.C., right now."
