Jaime Harrison Mocks “Sad” Lindsey Graham for Ducking Latest Debate


There are a lot of things going wrong for Lindsey Graham right now. The South Carolina senator has been getting crushed fundraising wise and has taken to regularly begging for donations on Fox News.

Graham is also up against a really tough challenger in Jaime Harrison. And Harrison has been getting under the senator’s skin in the worst way.  The democratic challenger when viral during their first debate when he brought his own plexiglass divider.

The men were set to debate again tonight. Graham decided not to participate. The incumbent senator has decided that it is more important to be in Washington DC to concentrate on the Amy Coney Barrett Supreme Court nomination process.

Harrison wasn’t about the let Graham live the decision down. He told SiriusXM’s Laura Coates:

“This is probably the most historic Senate race in the history of this state, and to have Sen. Graham ducking and dodging [the debate] is really sad, but it’s a testament to who he is. He believes that he represents the interest in Washington, D.C., instead of representing the interests of the people in South Carolina. And that’s why he’s on the verge of getting that one-way ticket back home.”

The challenger continued, “We are building something because we are focusing like a laser on the people in the state. As I said so many times on this campaign trail, we’re about to close the chapter on the old South and write a brand new book called the new South, one that is bold, that is inclusive and diverse.”

Jaime Harrison Rips Lindsey Graham Over his “Good Old Days of Segregation” Comments


Lindsey Graham has typically had an easy road to reelection since joining the United States senate in 2002. But his toadyism towards Donald Trump has made him one of the most unpopular lawmakers in America.

Graham’s race against Jaime Harrison is now being watched by people all over the country. Incredible amounts of money are coming into the Harrison campaign which has led to Graham repeatedly begging for money on Fox News.

And now, with this being such a high profile race, every move the South Carolina senator makes is scrutinized. Graham certainly didn’t help himself with comments he made during Wednesday’s Amy Coney Barrett hearing.

The South Carolina lawmaker asked the Supreme Court hopeful, “Do you think Brown vs. Board’s Super-precedent. Is that, you’re not aware of any effort to go back to the good old days of segregation?”

Harrison quickly seized on the matter, sharing a video of the comments on his Twitter page. The Democrat wrote, “Lindsey Graham just called segregation ‘the good old days.’ The good old days for who, Senator? It’s 2020, not 1920. Act like it.”

The senate hopeful followed with another tweet that read, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

Graham quickly moved into damage control over the controversy. The GOP lawmaker told reporters:

“It was with deep sarcasm that I suggested that some legislative body would want to yearn for the good old days of segregation. he point that I’m trying to make — there is nobody in America in the legislative arena wanting to take us back to that dark period in American history. For my opponent to suggest that says far more about him than me.”
