South Carolina “Republicans” Want Lindsey Graham To Drop Out

|| By FITSNEWS || Dozens of South Carolina “Republican” operatives want U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham to drop out of the 2016 presidential race … although none of them will go on the record for fear of reprisals from the veteran Washington, D.C. insider.

According to the latest national polling, Graham’s long shot presidential bid is drawing less than one percent support.  In fact he’s drawing less than five percent support in his home state, according to the latest “First in the South” presidential polling.

That puts Graham in seventh place in his own backyard – basically a non-factor in his own state.

Given this abysmal showing, multiple South Carolina operatives are wishing Graham would throw in the towel – or at the very least stop pressuring them to hold off on making “other plans.”  But with more than five years remaining on his latest U.S. Senate term, none of them are saying it to his face – as Graham still has the ability to make their lives miserable if they publicly oppose him.

But is there a point to Graham’s ongoing candidacy?

“He got in to be the Rand Paul stalking horse, and Rand Paul has imploded,” one veteran Palmetto politico told us. “That means his usefulness in the campaign is effectively over.”

Another veteran South Carolina operative told us “Graham is beginning to upset a lot of people by staying in the race,” adding that his candidacy has become “embarrassing.”

“If he stays in through the (First in the South) primary you could see that anger start to boil over,” the operative told us.

Both of these individuals are establishment “Republicans” – longtime supporters of Graham who back his interventionist foreign policy (among other braindead views).

In other words they’re not Tea Party types – who have always loathed Graham.

What’s motivating their anger?  Easy: The artificial ceiling Graham’s candidacy is placing on the upwardly mobility of South Carolina elected officials and operatives eager to hitch their stars to legitimate campaigns.

“He is certainly costing some people shots at ambassadorships or high level positions,” another source told us, referring to coveted positions which go to early supporters of presidential candidates.

Basically the longer Graham stays in the race, the longer certain elected officials must wait to endorse viable candidates … thus decreasing the likelihood they would receive top posts in their administrations, should they win the nomination.

Make sense?

As frustrating as the “Graham ceiling” may be, though, don’t expect any of these establishment activists, operatives or elected officials who whispered their frustration to us to come out and publicly call on Graham to exit the race.

Even though it’s abundantly clear at this point he should …

“He is certainly costing some people shots at ambassadorships or high level positions,” another source told us, referring to coveted positions which go to early supporters of presidential candidates.

This is it in a nutshell. The whole reason the ‘establishment’ is involved in politics in the first place. They are all looking for what it will do for THEM. Governing and ideology are just a means to a end, not what they genuinely care about. It is all about the POWER nothing else really matters.

Why would any establishment politicians talk to Will? So their selfish motives can be reported. Does South Carolina not only have self serving politicians, do they have to be stupid too?

Have you seen the results of the ‘republican revolution’? Funny how they all turned into fans of Obama’s policies.

Do your homework, Dumbass August 18, 2015 at 6:50 pm

Is that why Obama has had to rely on the UN, executive orders, and political activist judges to force his violations against the Constitution on the American people?

No for you, my friend. SC educated people are not at the top of the food chain as far as education goes. This state is R only, you should know that. Good luck to you. Have a great day in SC.

Naw, he’s already been beat to that finish line by Chester A. Arthur (probably) and James Buchanan (most assuredly.

Buchanan stayed single his whole life and lived with the distinguished senator from Alabama William “Rufus” King who was most certainly gay. Andrew Jackson referred to the couple as “Ms. Nancy and Aunt Fancy”

ModerateLibertarian not wanted August 18, 2015 at 5:42 pm

He’s a moderate libertarian. That killed Nancy Mace’s campaign, because she was associated with this website, and it’s moderate libertarian, no matter what they claim.

Nominating a moderate-libertarian gave us the worst president in my lifetime. Republicans will do anything to avoid that again. Our country cannot survive another Democrat after the mess Obama has made.

Moderate libertarians need not apply.

Too late, the Iraq war already happened.

RogueElephant August 18, 2015 at 7:50 pm

“The Iraq war has already happened.” It was won fair and square. The people were freed. The dictator was removed from office and hanged. The people were allowed to vote. A new way of life was given to them by President Bush. Then it was all wasted by the POS in the oval office.

Sic Semper Tyrannis August 18, 2015 at 9:03 pm

And the result is, 0. What is the gain from Iraq ?

Not so, a disaster that destroyed America. I said before, 20 years and maybe a recovery, as LONG as a republican cannot go to war again. Good thing the country is not as stupid as SC.

LIndsay Graham has always been embarrassing to the party, at least since he started being McCain’s bitch.

LINDSEY and his people have taken in a fair amount of money, which they paid to themselves.
It raises their profile and pits them in the game, all be it in the bottom rung.

Face it, in presidential politics, the losers and their cronies do well.

Looming Indictment August 19, 2015 at 9:17 am

You candidate is Hillary…Hahahahaha. Just an indictment away. Hahahaha..

Rocky Verdad August 19, 2015 at 7:39 am

Folks will (funny – read it backwards it says Will Folks) – anyway – candidates will drop out in the following line – Perry, Jindal, Pataki, Sanitorium – Graham and Paul and Christie, boy we’re having fun. Gilmore and then Walker, (cause Walker’s falling fast), then it will be Huckabee, cause he really just can’t last, lastly comes the loozas, Cruz and Rubio, but Marco leaves when the Establishment, says he needs to go. Because by first March, they need to be down to only three, in order to defeat the Trump, and keep the country free.

RogueElephant August 19, 2015 at 8:41 am

The establishment wants a Bush / Clinton race. Then, no matter who wins, you won’t be able to tell the difference. Trump is answering a call by being self financing. He is able to tell the truth without the fear of being starved out. It is a wonderful thing to observe. The establishment types don’t like people who rock the boat. I just hope most of these losers stop by SCGOP HQ and anti-up the forty grand before they implode.

Clinton Slime is public again August 19, 2015 at 9:15 am

You didn’t mention Hillary on the drop-out list. Or are you thinking the indictment will be her dropping out point?

Hahahaha. Sucks to be YOU!!!

Daniel Boome August 19, 2015 at 10:06 am

The US Chamber of Commerce will not let him drop out until the SC primary is over. The only reason they have in the field is to split the delegates in this state in order to keep Jeb afloat. It’s also the reason that there is no chance Rubio drops out before Florida or Perry drops out before Texas.

Henry McMaster can still be ambassador to Crackertown, right?

TruthTeller August 19, 2015 at 3:36 pm

This is coming from David Wilkins. You know, the guy that got an ambassadorship to Canada, while his brother got a federal judgeship, and son got a US Attorney of SC job.

Ever wonder how many MILLIONS of taxpayer dollars ended up in the Wilkins family bank accounts?

Also, it’s very common knowledge in the Clemson community that David Wilkins is lobbying the board of trustees to re-name Tillman Hall to Wilkins Hall.
