“Well, you know, he’s saying scheduling, and then he even said something about September debate. This is October, you know, I can send the Senator a calendar if he doesn’t have one. I know he doesn’t have a smartphone, he still uses a flip phone, but this is October. We are two weeks away from the election and the people in South Carolina want to hear from their Senator and the candidates about this particular race. This is probably the most historic Senate race in the history of this state, and to have Senator Graham ducking and dodge [the debate], is really sad, but it’s a testament to who he is. He believes that he represents the interest in Washington, D.C. Instead of representing the interests of the people in South Carolina. And that’s why he’s on the verge of getting that one way ticket back home. We are building something because we are focusing like a laser on the people in the state. As I said, so many times on this campaign trail, we’re about to close the chapter on ‘the old south’ and write a brand new book called ‘the new south,’ one that is bold, that is inclusive and diverse. And it’s a movement that we have spawned here in South Carolina, and it’s one that I hope people continue to invest in. Volunteers, sign up, go to Jamieharrison.com if you want to be a part of this movement and to give Lindsey Graham his one way ticket home back to Seneca, South Carolina.”
