jself@thestate.comSeptember 4, 2013 

— State Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, will debate YouTube videos of Lindsey Graham at a Columbia Tea Party gathering Thursday.

The event will take place at the South Carolina Troopers Association, 4961 Broad River Road, at 7:00 p.m. Columbia Tea Party Chairman Jack Hatfield will moderate, according to a release from Bright’s campaign.

Graham has three Republican primary challengers, including Bright, currently in his second term in the S.C. Senate.

Also challenging Graham are Nancy Mace, owner of a Charleston marketing firm, and Richard Cash, an Anderson County businessman who owns a fleet of ice cream trucks and a used car dealership.

Graham’s opponents have criticized Graham for not spending time in the state during the congressional recess.

Graham is making appearances in eight cities across the state this week, according to his spokesman.
