Graham and 6 GOP challengers debate

COLUMBIA — The six Republican challengers trying to beat U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham tried to position themselves at their only debate as the best choice to replace the incumbent.

Graham spent his time at Saturday’s debate defending his 12 years in the Senate. Graham says his challengers are too conservative and would threaten Republicans’ chances to win back the U.S. Senate.

Lee Bright found fault with Graham supporting President Obama’s Supreme Court candidates. Det Bowers said Graham isn’t principled enough while Richard Cash said Graham was wrong to offer amnesty to illegal aliens.

Bill Connor said Graham doesn’t follow the U.S. Constitution. Benjamin Dunn said a conservative wouldn’t spend millions on his re-election. And Nancy Mace said politicians like Graham are entrenched in Washington.
