Graham draws potential primary challenger in South Carolina
Posted by
CNN Political Reporter Peter Hamby

(CNN) - South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a maverick Republican hailing from a conservative state, has long been considered vulnerable to a primary challenge in 2014.

Several prominent names in Palmetto State GOP politics have passed on taking on Graham next year, but it now appears he may have a serious opponent.

Saying that Graham has betrayed a number of conservative principles, state Sen. Lee Bright told CNN Monday that he is still in the process of making a decision, but the chances of him entering the Senate race are "definitely better than 50 percent."

"I was a huge fan of Lindsey's for the six years he was in Congress," Bright said in a phone interview. "Since he got into the Senate he has gone off the reservation in terms of the conservative ideals I believe in. I don't feel like that can go unchallenged."

1. off the reservation

so THIS guy thinks Graham is off the reservation and according to link he proposed in 2011 that South Carolina examine creating its own currency.

"If folks lose faith in the dollar, we need to have some kind of backup," he said at the time.

and who is off the reservation?

5. A primary challenger for Lindsey would be very nice. What we he think of the R party and

the teabaggers now?? Then we can see magoo and lieberman go down and help campaign for him.
