Citadel Graduate Nancy Mace to Primary Lindsey Graham in 2014

graham2

This weekend, Citadel graduate Nancy Mace announced she will challenge Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2014.  Right along with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Graham will now probably attempt to bend even more to the right of where he already was in the coming months in the Senate.

Mace, who has never held public office, is likely to assert herself as being politically to the right of Graham, if that’s possible.  In South Carolina such rightward moves are likely to be attractive to the state’s conservative voters.  Since the coming of the Tea Party in late 2009, such rightward moves have become the standard dance in GOP politics as the party wrestles with an identity crisis in the age of Obama.

Graham will obviously have a large advantage. Mace will pull out every tea party slogan in the book and attempt to label Graham as a RINO. Republican Senator Mike Enzi of Utah is also facing a primary challenge from Dick Cheney’s oldest daughter Liz Cheney.  The same strategy against Graham will be seen in the Enzi and McConnell races.

    This is a very uninformed article, or perhaps just propaganda. Graham is a big government neocon and so one does not have to even try to get to the right of him. Just be a mainstream conservative. As to Enzi-Cheney, the latter is also a big government neocon, so she will be to the left of Enzi.


  2. Which card is ideal and easy to get if We have incredibly low credit score? Any recommendation
