Nancy Mace’s “Minivan” Money Bomb
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham has a mountain of special interest money fueling his 2014 reelection bid: $6.3 million the last time we checked (and that doesn’t count the party money and independent expenditure ads expected to come his way).
His opponents? They’re running on fumes … literally.
In fact one of Graham’s challengers in next spring’s GOP primary election is looking for help “filling up her minivan.”
Nancy Mace – viewed by some as the most electable of Graham’s three announced primary opponents – sent out this distinctly “mom-themed” fundraising appeal this weekend in an effort to raise cash for her campaign in advance of a September 30 Federal Election Commission (FEC) quarterly fundraising deadline. Mace’s pitch – entitled #MaceMoneyBomb – showed her in a form-fitting black dress pumping gasoline into her van.

Not bad …
All of Graham’s opponents are going out of their way to put up big fundraising numbers – hoping to lure some national cash into the race on their behalf.
In addition to Mace, S.C. Sen. Lee Bright and social conservative attorney Richard Cash have announced their candidacies. Another lawyer – former lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Bill Connor – is reportedly planning on entering the race soon.
