South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham released the final ads of his primary campaign for re-election Thursday.

Both ads — a 30-second TV spot and 60-second radio spot — feature Graham ticking off his efforts for conservative priorities, including fighting unions and the Affordable Care Act, supporting the military and the Keystone XL pipeline, and continuing to look into the 2012 deaths in Benghazi, Libya.

The ads are part of a “significant six-figure statewide” buy and come one day after a Clemson poll found Graham taking 49 percent of the vote, just shy of the majority he needs to escape a runoff against a handful of lesser-known challengers. He still had $3.7 million on hand as of May 21, the close of the pre-primary fundraising period.

“I’m fighting for our values against those who want to remake our country into something we don’t recognize,” Graham says in the radio ad.

    I hope the Republican party in South Carolina is paying attention! Lindsey Graham is overdue to be removed! He is a RINO and has sold his votes….his net worth right now is 18,500,000 Million and his voting record is dismal!

    He had voted a WHOPPING 52% OF HIS TIME WITH THE PROGRESSIVE LEFT!!!! HE DOES WHATEVER MC CAIN. He continues to push for Amnesty for 11,000,000 million people. If that happens it will be the end of the Republican party…..vote for a Lee Bright…he has been in the State Legislature so he has experience!

    VOTE FOR LEE BRIGHT!!!!

    Graham just wants to be liked!!! He keeps hanging with the democrats because they use him for his votes!!!! He likes to think he is an authority on foreign policy….he isn’t! Talk to the actual ambassadors!

    He was on the Gang of 8 and was giddy that the bill to pass in the Democratic led Senate voted for giving Amnesty to 11,000,000 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!!! IF THAT HAPPENS AMERICA WILL BECOME PART OF MEXICO!!!! WE WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT. GET HIM OUT!!!!

    True voters are not very savvy. But it’s hoped they throw sissy-boy out of office.

    Private property is one of the best ways to motivate people towards voluntarily making the most of their own unique talents, thus maximizing their overall contribution to civilization.

    THE REPUBLICANS AND THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FAILED THE MORE THAN 2.6 MILLION UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES WITHOUT AN EXTENSION OF UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS SINCE LATE LAST DECEMBER. OVER THE PAST FIVE AND A HALF MONTHS, MANY FAMILIES HAVE FACED EVICTIONS, HOME FORECLOSURES, BANKRUPTCY, AND HOMELESSNESS, WHILE THE SENATE HOLDS THE EXTENSION BILL HOSTAGE, REFUSING TO PASS THE BILL. ALTHOUGH BILLIONS HAVE BEEN RECENTLY APPROVED FOR THE UKRAINE, THE REPUBLICANS FEEL THAT THESE AMERICAN FAMILIES DON’T DESERVE THE HELP. THEY’VE CALLED THESE WORKERS “LAZY” AND HAVE BLAMED THEM FOR THEIR CIRUMSTANCE. THESE POLITICIANS HAVE SHOWN LITTLE COMPASSION AND COMMON DECENCY TOWARDS THESE FAMILIES IN DIRE FINANCIAL NEED. WE NEED TO VOTE THESE CAREER POLITICIANS OUT OF OFFICE
