Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham defeated Democratic challenger Jamie Harrison in South Carolina on Tuesday night.
Harrison was the first African American chair of the South Carolina Democratic Party in 2013 and very well funded. Harrison raised $109 million through mid-October compared to Graham’s 70 million. CBN reported the race between the “candidates was the most expensive in the state’s history at a whopping $200 million.”
Graham will be going into his fourth term in the Senate and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994 — the first Republican from the Third Congressional District of South Carolina since 1877. Graham compiled a distinguished record in the United States Air Force as an Air Force lawyer.
