Some advice for Jaime Harrison who's running against Lindsey Graham

I would run ads calling out Sen. Graham's lack of honor. Going back on his word. Saying one thing, one day, and then saying something entirely different. Regardless of politics, being dishonorable is a political sin. Even if you agree with him now, what about tomorrow? Can you trust him to do the right thing? Can you believe a word that he says? Would you put your child's life in his hands?

And if Graham responds by saying, the Democrats forced my hand, then respond by saying, "You're no better than they are. Two wrongs make it right?"

I think that that line of attack would be Harrison's best bet. Regardless of the polls, Harrison faces an up hill battle, but challenging Lindsey on honor is his best bet.

1. McGrath should do the same in Kentucky

Beat Mitch over the head with this, that they are thieves, they have no honor

19. Yup. The GOP has one plank: "F*ck Liberals"

The fact that Graham or McConnell have over 40% in their states is a testament to that fact.

Republicans don't care what happens so long as liberals get f'd. In their view, everything the fault of the "liberal". Even when their own politicians screw them, its somehow the fault of liberals.

McConnell and Graham know this, they exploit this to stay in power.

Incidentally, this is exactly what the Nazis did. The fascist takeover of the GOP is complete.

2. Just tell the people Graham's word can't be trusted. When he says

He won't push a supreme court seat through, he's lying.

When he says he'll protect healthcare, he's lying.

When he says he'll protect preexisting conditions coverage, he's lying.

When he says he'll protect social security, he's lying.

When he says he's working for the people of South Carolina, he's lying.

That should do it

5. Absolutely not. Run on health care in the midst of a pandemic, and economic distress...with

the possibility that the ACA will go down in December...run on an issue people are concerned about. Honor or in this case lack there of... not a winning message.

15. He wrote the ads himself. There's a ton of them with him saying one thing and then

saying the other. Run them with "LIAR" stamped into his forehead. No narrative needed.

24. "Flip-flopper" might be better for South Carolinians. "Liar" is too direct..

remember their Gov "creating a fiction" about his affair, hiking the AT, etc.? Plus flip-flopper throws the abuse heaped on John Kerry back in their faces.

23. They need to tie all of that into Social Security/Medicare and question whether Lindsey's word...

means anything. Run clips of Trump's Davos "cuts" remarks and his recent remarks about permanently eliminating the payroll tax. "Can Trump's lapdog Lindsey be trusted on Social Security and Medicare?" There are A LOT of seniors in SC who might just switch their votes.

don't even mention the SCOTUS........ just ask, "if you cannot trust a word coming out of his mouth, how can you trust him to do what's right for SC?"

27. Honor actually resonates in the South to some extent because of historical sensibility

So I think it's a good idea. Follow up by committing to be honorable no matter the cost to self or party.

28. Lincoln Project wants to run an ad about Graham not honoring his word.

They are raising $1M to run it.

I gave $25.
