Lindsey Graham opponent drops bombshell about surprise voter turnout in South Carolina's GOP countie

Taking note of the huge turnout –particularly by African-American voters — in South Carolina’s Democratic primary on Saturday, the presumptive nominee to face Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the Republican incumbent should be terrified by what he might face in the 2020 general election.

Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, former South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison said the huge turnout should be a red flag for the Trump-supporting Republican who holds a slim lead in the polls.

Asked about the “decisive” win by former Vice President Joe Biden, Harrison explained what he saw on the ground in his home state.

“I was a bit surprised,” Harrison admitted. “But the thing that really surprised me, Joy, was the turnout numbers here in South Carolina. We almost eclipsed — we’ll get the final word maybe today or tomorrow — the historic turnout we saw in the 2008 election with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards. I never thought we would get that close, we far surpassed what we saw in 2016.”

20. Dreaming big: defeat Graham and McConnell.

Or, if we can't defeat McConnell, then win the Senate and give him an office in the basement, with leaky steam pipes.

14. I have a bigger dream

 

Besides sharing your dream, I have a bit more.

McConnell out and investigated, his wife out and investigated.
Nunes out and investigated.
trump out and jailed.
the entire trump family out, investigated and some in jail (Don jr would be great in a cell with the dead animals he killed).
Grassley out
Pence out and investigated.
Pompeo out, investigated, disbarred.
Barr out, disbarred, investigated, jailed.
Mulvaney investigated, made to pay huge fines.
Alexander Acosta investigated, disbarred, jailed.
Stephen Miller investigated, sent to a concentration camp...Only kidding, just jailed.
And more...Its a big dream...

Of course that all of these would be indicted...

13. Jaime Harrison really has the "it" factor when it comes to appeal as a politician.

He's got a real shot at ridding us of Graham once and for all.

18. A lot of Repubs voted in the SC Democratic primary .. just not the way they were supposed to.

Instead of voting for Bernie, like their GOP party bosses wanted, they voted for Biden. And the reason they voted for Biden is that they want someone to vote for other than Trump in November, and they coudn't vote for Bernie for POTUS.

And Lindsey? He had better "check six."

I'm not in his state, but I'm happy to support his effort to oust Lindsey Graham. It's time for Graham, McConnell, Collins to turn in their badges and be gone.

26. Turnout is the key

African Americans are under-registered in most Southern states. There's still that fear of going to register and someone threatening something if you do, or a nasty court clerk making it an embarrassing, tough prospect. But the bottom line is that turnout wins elections, and in states like South Carolina, the key to winning isn't convincing some white conservatives to change their vote, it is just registering more African American and Latino voters. Get a turnout and you can, like Doug Jones, be a Democrat who wins statewide.
