Opinion: Why I endorse challenger Harrison over Sen. Lindsey Graham

Some of you have seen in news reports that I have endorsed Jaime Harrison for the U.S. Senate seat in South Carolina against Lindsey Graham.


I supported Lindsey Graham until 2017. I saw him as a moderate Republican who could work across the aisle to get positive change made. But I started having real misgivings about him when he failed to mount any significant defense when Donald Trump attacked his best friend, the late Sen. John McCain.


In 2019, I was excited when I learned that Jaime Harrison was going to run for the US Senate. I had known Jaime for years and had been impressed with his intelligence, his genuine warmth and concern for all people, and his moderate stance on the issues that confront us. I had seen him work effectively with people from both parties. I believe that we need people like Jaime who will get us to listen to each other and craft the best decisions for all of us and stop the bitter win/lose that is dividing us.

Democrats, Republicans, and Independents are all citizens of our great country. We are at our best when we respect each other, listen to each other, and work together to find solutions. Jaime can help us get there, and that is why I strongly endorse him.
