Three of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's June primary challengers have agreed to back one another in a runoff against the incumbent from Seneca -- if June's Republican primary comes to that.

State Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, Easley businessman Richard Cash, and Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor will hold a press conference at 11 a.m. at the State House to make the announcement and sign an agreement to support each other if one candidate advances to a runoff with Graham, Connor's campaign announced Thursday morning.

Holding Graham to 50 percent or less of the vote would force him into a runoff, where his challengers think he would be vulnerable.
