Independent Money To Target Ravenel

Former S.C. Treasurer Thomas Ravenel has tons of money … and it stands to reason he’ll drop a significant chunk of that fortune on his recently announced petition candidacy against incumbent liberal Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.).

You know … assuming Graham wins the GOP nomination this spring.

But is Ravenel ready for the onslaught of money Graham supporters are preparing to drop on him?

Sources familiar with Graham’s reelection bid tell FITS that as much as $5 million in independent expenditure money could be devoted to going after “T-Rav” – who obviously has no shortage of exploitable vulnerabilities.

“When we’re done with him he’ll be lucky to get one percent of the vote,” one consultant preparing Graham’s independent expenditure ads told FITS. “And that he’ll get out of pity.”

Wow … them’s fighting words.

Ravenel has vowed to see what Graham raises and match him “dollar for dollar” in the November election.

Graham must first get through the GOP primary on June 10 – and a possible Republican runoff election on June 24.

T-Rav’s is 100% douche.

Matt April 11, 2014 at 8:35 pm

lol, dead on.
I love this part of the article “assuming Graham wins the GOP nomination this spring.” No need to assume, he is going to win in a landslide.

Mike at the Beach April 12, 2014 at 12:18 am

Comical, no? I think Will believes that if he says it enough it will become true.

YallCalmDown April 12, 2014 at 1:05 pm

That’s becoming painfully obvious as more T-Rav advertisements – I mean, articles – appear on this site every day.

Mike at the Beach April 12, 2014 at 1:12 pm

Believe it or not, he’s toned it down in the most recent week or two. It was getting almost unbearable there for a bit. I can’t wait for November; it will be entertaining.

Smirks April 12, 2014 at 10:57 am

Just 100%?

sdrawkcab April 11, 2014 at 9:04 pm

This is all tough to get a good read on – I can’t decide of T-Rav is just still on drugs and disillusioned, bored and desperately wanting the attention regardless of whether it’s good or bad, or if all this senate talk is hot air for his “reality show.” Perhaps it’s a combination of all three.

vindicator5 April 11, 2014 at 10:41 pm

Fuck Graham. Tell him to take the dick out of his mouth.

Bible Thumper April 11, 2014 at 10:57 pm

It’s hard to predict which is canceled first. Will it be the TV show or his candidacy. As for “sources familiar with Graham’s reelection bid” what does that mean? Only a Ravenel supporter would want that kind of statement made so as to make others believe his campaign is a legitimate threat.

Comon folks, quit knockin’ T-Rav’s candidacicy. The boy brings a ton of experience to the campaign. He’s an expert in many disciplines. He’s got more experience in all aspects of the law than Trey Gowdy. He knows logistics, marketing, and distribution better than FedEx. He knows more about medicine and the metabolic implications of exotic injections than any anesthesiologist. He’s certainly got street creds in international trade with the networks he’s opened to Columbia. He’s on the right side of the “war on women”, they love him. And he’s shown he’s healthy too. He’s never filed for disability from high repeat-motion carpel tunnel brought on by all those pesky trust checks he has to sign. We need well-qualified folks like this in the Senate. GO T-Rav!

Suppose T-Rav is the kamakzi to bring a flame(ing) war Lindsey down?

RogueElephant April 12, 2014 at 10:29 am

WOW. Like I said before: I haven’t seen this much jealous sniping since the rich kid got a new Corvette for his 16th. birthday. BTW The June 10th primary isn’t over yet. There is a certain “Orangeburg attorney”, Lt. Colonel, Airborne Ranger, Christian, business man, family man Constitutional conservative coming on strong and getting stronger every day. Grahamnasty better be looking at the primary and worrying. RESTORE HONOR VOTE CONNOR.

I sincerely hope the only person dumb enough to piss their money down the drain on T-Rav’s campaign is T-Rav himself. Better not spend it all though, cocaine ain’t cheap!

anonymous April 12, 2014 at 11:51 am

Where’s the picture of the boat? I miss the boat. Bring back the boat. We all want to see the drug runs, while he’s in the boat.

t-rav=alvin greene 2.0 April 13, 2014 at 7:06 am

my only problem with t-rav, besides the fact that he’s a cokehead who is still an alcoholic and that he’s the least mature person on his msnbc/bravo (gay agenda network) reality show (and the fact that whiteny and his mom laugh in his face while making fun of him) is that he’s only “running” to pimp his tv show. we saw this same thing with trump: he started talking obama’s birth certiicate right around seasonal finale of apprentice (ALSO NBC network). First off this is a 100% fake politica campaign and a 100% PR campaign for a bravo reality show where they wh0red out that red head tart. and scondly as nbc/pmsnbc is pro-obama 100% (the democrat version of foxnews), the whole purpose of t-rav’s fake campaig is to AID lindsey graham in getting re-elected. We’ve seen this BS before: when jimdemint- theQUITTER- had a patsy opponent. t-rav, who has zero chance to winb and even less credibility in a state whose leaders have no credibility is running as the alvin greene 2.0.

moemoneyplz April 13, 2014 at 9:03 am

Who has another 5 million$$ to give to Graham? Where do these people get all that cash? Man, I’ d like to know cuz I am in the wrong bidness……

GrandTango April 13, 2014 at 1:36 pm

Can you use Drug Money to finance a political campaign???…

Also: FITS went Ape-$#!*, and advocated prosecution, because Ken Ard spent money HE gave to his own campaign fund, the way the Almighty Government told him he could not…

Now a fellow-gravy Train Yuppie Baby wants to BUY political power w/ Trust Fund money, made off the Government (like FITS Daddy)…and he is FITS’ F*#king Hero…

Talk about Hypocrites…Liberal-Tarian is synonymous w/ hypocrite…..

Buz Martin April 13, 2014 at 8:41 pm

Um. “… fellow-gravy Train Yuppie Baby”? Is this part of the Sic saga we haven’t been told? I don’t think so. If he were a trust fund baby like T-Rav he would not have to hustle the way he does, and he’d have published the damned book about fucking Nikki and not have to worry about the consequences. Nope, this is just more of you talking out your ignant deluded ass, GT.

GrandTango April 13, 2014 at 9:05 pm

Buz, do you think you are also an idiot and a liar, if FITS looks like one???…Or is this you FITS, co-opting your ol’ @$$-kissing buddy’s persona????…

Boz used to accuse every Horry County Pol of being a crook, based on his “inside” info….Buz just defends FITS like they are lovers…

Buz Martin April 13, 2014 at 10:28 pm

Defends, you say? You think that was me defending him? No, it was more like a clear-eyed look at reality. Try it some time. I support Will when I think he’s right, sometimes chide him when I think he’s wrong, etc. End of the day, I’m glad this blog exists, and I’m glad Will does what he does. Ravenel — if I NEVER hear his name again, it will be too soon. btw — and I know this is not the first time this has been pointed out — you have a really bizarre fixation on people being (in your mind) gay. Project much?

GrandTango April 14, 2014 at 9:48 am

Either you’re as dishonest as FITS, or you are not bright enough to figure out that his solutions always lead to what you, and he, claim you hate.

FITS is always working against Conservative gov’t…even after Liberals have brought us to disaster, and Liberal-Tarains have proven to be irresponsible, immature and un-electable..

We cannot afford your lies and/or stupidity. We need gov’t that has worked, and the only type of leadership that will rescue us from the sorry-@$$ officials you have assured for us….If you’re not eating, breathing and sleeping for Conservatives…you ARE the problem…And you need to STFU…You’ve done enough damage as it is…

amused April 13, 2014 at 9:37 pm

Sure you can, who do you think it is running the drugs, gambling, Prostitution, corporate fraud rings. … both the republicans and democrats. . Thurmond, Blast, Williams, and so on, in the recent past. Don’t forget about all the sheriff’s being lower line management for the business. They work together to complete the criminal enterprise activities. Lot of money involved. .. most people are too preoccupied in the various separate the masses games; gay v straight, gun right v gun banners, smokers v non smokers, republicans v democrats, ect. Graham the fiscal conservative, Is one of the original new republicans to destroy the contract with America, sold out the middle class to big business and multinational corporations, and had gotten rich stealing the middle class tax as he orchestrates the redistribution to corporations. Guess what, democrats are working with him. .. they work together. People need to do their homework. War on drugs. There hasn’t been a war on drugs. Reagan opened the flood gates when Bill Benton announced the war on drugs was shifting from the trailer trafficker to the street level dealer. To much money supporting the economy.
