ELECTION 2014: Lindsey Graham airs first TV and radio spots

Posted by JAMIE SELF on February 11, 2014 

— U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's 2014 re-election campaign has released its first television and radio ads of the election season.

The 30-second TV ad and minute-long radio ad tout Graham as a conservative leader "who gets things done."

The ads highlight the Seneca Republican's commitment to questioning President Barack Obama's administration about an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, his opposition to Obamacare and his support for Second Amendment rights.

They also say Graham fought against "union bosses," who he claims fought Boeing's expansion in South Carolina, and say Graham has been a champion for the military and veterans.

The ads do not mention any of Graham's five primary opponents: state Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg; Easley businessman Richard Cash; Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor; Charleston PR executive Nancy Mace; and Columbia pastor Det Bowers.

Bowers has not announced his candidacy officially, but has filed papers with the Federal Election Commission.
