COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) ........................


Graham's $3.29 million raised in the third quarter of this year is the most raised in a single quarter by any candidate in South Carolina's history, his campaign said Tuesday. The previous record was Jim DeMint's $3.125 million in 2004 for a U.S. Senate seat.

The campaign also said that the Republican's total is the most raised in this filing period by any Republican U.S. Senate candidate in the country.
............................................

Officials with Graham's reelection campaign said he has almost $8.4 million cash on hand. That's the third-highest cash-on-hand total for a Republican Senate candidate, after Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and John Cornyn of Texas.

Jaime Harrison, who is running as a Democrat for Graham's Senate seat, raised more than $2.2 million in the third quarter and has more than $2.6 million on hand............................................

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is backing Harrison, who has said he thinks it could take $10 million to win next year's race. Flipping a Senate seat from red to blue in South Carolina would be difficult and likely would require millions of dollars in fundraising, an area in which national-level groups like the DSCC would be crucial.....................................

16. Laundered rubles. That is where folks like Trump and Sheldon Addelson come in. Casinos are great

laundries. I will bet that Trump was once the Kremlin's best launderer.

10. Interesting...

 

Everything about Senator Graham seems wrong to me. His bigly about-face on trump was the big tell, methinks. It's not out of the realm of probability that the origins of his campaign war chest might be suspect...

It seems quite probable that he has been severely compromised in some shape or form...Somebody has something on him that has got him scared shitless....Could it be that those pesky Russian hackers uncovered something about Graham that he really doesn't want revealed?
