If you are interested in seeing Lindsey Graham defeated and you can lend assistance to the effort here on this site, I’d like to hear from you. I need people who will do research on Lindsey Graham’s record, write pieces about Lindsey Graham and will help with organizing around the state.
I had a number of people remind me just how difficult it can be to unseat an incumbent. While I understand that this could be a difficult project, I am convinced that it will be easier than defeating most incumbents. Graham is in his first term and he has squandered the good will he had coming in. Many, many conservatives around the state who voted for Graham in 2002 will not be excited about supporting him again in ’08. I believe we have a real opportunity here.
In addition to the work needed to expose all of Graham’s actions in the Senate that work against conservatism, we also need to think about recruiting a conservative to oppose him. I’ve state that I am prepared to support a Democrat if that is what it takes but it certainly isn’t my preference. Our job will be much easier if there is a solid conservative candidate to challenge Graham in the primary but that isn’t likely unless conservatives work in concert to find and recruit that candidate. It is a given that the Republican machine will be behind Graham so we need to start early to work against that.
So I am making a general call for all who want to see Graham defeated. If you can help in any way at all, I need to hear from you. You can leave a comment here or you can email me at email@example.com.
