A FOX News article reports that Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham may be in for his toughest re-election fight yet against well-funded Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison. Danielle Vinson, a professor of politics and international affairs at Furman University, said Harrison’s attack against Graham has been nuanced and effective.

“In South Carolina, you’re not going to win a statewide race by attacking Republicans, per se, they’re the largest voting bloc in the state,” Vinson said. “And so you’ve got to be more nuanced about it and (Harrison) really has…He’s condemning what we’ve seen in Lindsey Graham the last three and a half years. And I think that’s resonating in certain parts of the state in ways that may surprise Graham.”
