A national Tea Party group is endorsing the U.S. Senate candidacy of Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace, according to an exclusive report published this week by Breitbart.
“It’s long past time we had a conservative of conscience, not a conservative of convenience, representing South Carolina,” Tea Party Leadership Fund founder Todd Cefaratti told the site. “In Nancy Mace, we have a candidate that tea party groups and conservatives across the state can unite behind, and finally we can send Lindsey Graham into retirement.”
Mace is one of three announced challengers to Graham. The others? Social conservative S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg) and Piedmont, S.C. attorney Richard Cash.
