      (The Hill) Democrats are feeling increasingly optimistic about their chances of unseating Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) in South Carolina, bolstered by a recent slate of favorable polling and a massive cash windfall building behind Democrat Jaime Harrison’s Senate campaign.

      A Quinnipiac University poll of the state released this week — the second in a little more than a month — showed Graham and Harrison running neck and neck at 48 percent each.

      In the two days since then, Harrison has pulled in a staggering $2 million, adding to an already massive $10.6 million haul in August alone. And in a sign that national Democrats are eyeing the race with greater enthusiasm, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced a new seven-figure cash injection in the state.

      “There’s a lot of momentum on the ground here and it’s so great and it’s so encouraging,” Harrison said in an interview on Friday. “When I first got into this race and people told me that I couldn’t do this, my whole statement to them is ‘Watch me,’ and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”

      Graham’s tripped himself up with his own lies and flip-flopping, methinks. The longtime “best friend” of John McCain turned on his memory so he could kiss Trump’s ass like the good little weasel he is. He took the lead in denying Obama’s last Supreme Court pick for an entire year, then said the Senate should not confirm a Supreme Court nominee close to an election, and now has done a 180 and is all for pushing Trump’s pick through.

      Harrison’s no leftist prize. He’s just another neoliberal corporatist Democrat sellout, but he has a chance of getting a lot of split-ticket voters who will vote for him and Trump at the same time. If Graham loses, it will be his own hypocrisy, cowardice, and lack of honor and integrity that sinks him.

      When in trouble, maggots slime their way onto FOX to beg for money and support. May you die a slow political death for embracing dictatorship in a struggling US.
