Lee Bright To Debate “YouTube” Lindsey
State Senator Lee Bright is personally challenging establishment incumbent Lindsey Graham to a debate, and Thursday night in Columbia, the challenger will debate a YouTube version of Graham at the South Carolina Troopers Association, located at 4961 Broad River Road, at 7:00pm. Columbia Tea Party Chair Jack Hatfield will moderate.
“Senator Lindsey Graham might have been able to avoid his angry constituents during the August recess by staying away from South Carolina, but Graham’s words and actions did not go unnoticed – and they will not go unopposed,” says Bright, a Tea Party and liberty group favorite from Spartanburg.
“By ignoring constituents so he and John McCain could community organize for the Muslim Brotherhood, Graham has snubbed the voters” said Bright, “Yesterday, he and McCain were up in Barack Obama’s office plotting how they can ram through Obama’s failed foreign policy strategy.” Bright is also focusing on Graham’s domestic agenda, stating that “a few weeks ago Graham called efforts by Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to defund Obama Care a ‘bridge too far.’ We rejected Obama liberalism strongly twice in South Carolina, and yet we have a Senator who is constantly trying to support that agenda.”
“I guess we’ll just deal with Lindsey’s greatest hits” said Edmund Wright, a spokesman for Bright’s campaign. “The only bridge too far is Graham, who’s a bridge way too far to the left. He’s always stretching to reach agreement with people like Obama, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer, which is not what he was elected to do.”
“This debate will be a great opportunity for people to see how Mr. Graham does not line up with conservative principles, since we’ll put his own statements on display,” Bright said. “I’m looking forward to contrasting my conservative principles and voting record with someone who has strayed from our values for far too long.”
