U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's Republican primary challengers are debating this morning at about 11 a.m. at the S.C. Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach.
S.C. Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, Easley businessman Richard Cash, Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor, and Charleston PR executive Nancy Mace are running against Graham in the June primary.
One Democrat, Jay Stamper of Columbia, has announced a bid for the seat.
Graham was invited but did not attend, an announcer at the debate said. Graham tweeted from a town hall meeting in Edgefield Monday morning at the National Wild Turkey Federation headquarters.
