South Carolina Focus Of Immigration Ads

South Carolina has been the focus of a disproportionately large barrage of immigration ads over the last six months – most of them going to prop up U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.).

According to an analysis of immigration ad spending conducted by The Atlas Project, roughly $3.1 million has been spend on the issue nationwide – $2.3 million in support of comprehensive immigration reform and $800,000 against it. Of that $3.1 million total, roughly $146,000 has been spent in the Greenville, S.C. media market. Smaller ad buys were made in the Columbia and Charleston media markets.

Among all markets nationwide, Greenville, Columbia and Charleston ranked fourth, fifth and eighth in the total number of immigration-related spots aired, respectively.

The biggest purchaser of airtime? A group called the “South Carolina Conservative Action Alliance,” which spent nearly $140,000 on spots defending Graham.

Obviously groups spending money to prop up Graham isn’t newsworthy. They’ve been doing it for years.

What is worth noting? The far left lean of a lot of that money …

Graham is up for reelection in 2014 and is likely to face a credible challenge in the “Republican” primary – and possibly a third party challenger in the November general election.

Good thing for Graham SC has a short term memory, otherwise he’d have to weigh his support for anything amnesty with his upcoming reelection bid.

Graham is smart enough to see the sinking Republican ship. If immigration reform is not spearheaded by the Repubs, they will get hosed with the Hispanic vote again in 2016. Only hope now is for the Repubs to convert a lot of Hispanic voters. The modern US demographics demand this. Problem is, most of the US is moving away from ultra-conservatism (BigT noted exception and much of the reason why) so I’m not sure this alone will do it. And he risks losing his seat in this state by moving too much to the center.

Frank: after their arguments fail, and Obama has proven to be a disaster, they are reduced to a hate campaign….

It’s how Obama got elected. They have no substance. Just attack (and/or audit) the enemy…It’s why Liberal-Tarians are screwing up by aiding them…

Actually T, Obonehead is not really running a hate campaign. He’s taking most of his plays straight from the communist handbook. He has been since pre Chicago.

You should not underestimate the cunning of your opponent. Divisiveness and division are very powerful tools. If you can inflict sufficient fear in the lemmings, they will follow. Clearly you are one of them, no offense intended. You love Bush and hate Obutthead. Yet they have nearly the exact same policies, and continue to have.

That the lemmings are so willing to simply turn a blind eye to the loss of, I would guess, nearly half of their constitutional rights is testament to the power of the aforementioned tools.

Yes, T. I am calling Bushy a communist. Not as severe I will agree, but a commie just the same. Spend a little time reading some of the major legislation over the past two decades, and then read the Constitution of these United States. Don’t listen to the MSM. Don’t listen to your neighbor or parents. Just read them, verbatim, without input and then consider where we are. Really Fracking Scary T. Really Scary.
Have a Great Day, T.

Kinda Kooky, Frank…but most Liberal-Tarains are.

Also: You are as idealist in your belief that you can get all that you Demand, as the liberals are about an androgynous , kaki-skinned, grass-food, water drinking-car planet…

And: Obama is no more cunning than any other candidate. He fits the liberal, pop culture profile and has a Billion-dollar-a-day Industrial Media Complex radiating marching orders down to the stupid and easily led. And he likely cheated on a gargantuan level…

That said: Liberal-Tarians are smart enough to figure out that Obama is a disaster and joke, but too dull to know a vote for Ron Paul is as good as a vote for Obama…

I don’t Love Bush, or any Republican. They are just FAR more right and effective at successful government than anybody else…

A Bigger problem is: Idiots in 3rd parties too lazy or impatient to Vote Republican, and then DEMAND the elected govern responsibly…

To be a Liberal-Tarian is to be a quitter and attacker of the RIGHT…as you have done…
The Corrupt and Failed (The Obam-ites) just sit back and Laugh Their @$$#$ Off at you and FITS….

With the mis-guided Liberal-Tarians helping them, Obama can F*@& up all he wants..and you’ll send him, or the dems back, over and over…

We have no voice, when you weaken us w/ your Spoiled Brat Act…Grow up.

Just because you can’t gamble or hire whores, legally..don’t ruin our country….

Frank Pytel June 25, 2013 at 8:24 am

So I’m a kook because I ask you to read the constitution. I ask you to know your rights. I ask you to make your own decisions and that makes me a nut job?

GrandTango June 25, 2013 at 8:52 am

Frank: You have a LOOOONG way to go to get back to the Constitution…If you are wringing your hands over the Constitution, you are $#!* out of luck…and the liberals ALONE did it to you…

And while you are busy pontificating on the banks of the Potomac, Obama has bent you over and REAMED you out…all the while telling you that you and him are Ace-Boon-Spoons because he believes in the government forcing me to like Frank wed to Ed, the right to dope-up and mutilate infants (nowhere in the Constitution)……and you believe him…

In other words: you like to dream about getting back to the Constitution, and as long as Obama and Ron Paul can keep you and FITS in bed with your eyes closed tight…Liberals and Liberal-Tarians can rob you blind of all you have, and your rights……

Frank Pytel June 25, 2013 at 9:29 am

Yeah T. That’s what liberals do. Avoid the question at all costs.

Graham is certainly a douche, but he just as certainly will NOT face a “credible challenge” in the Republican primary. That’s simply wishful thinking in SC.
