U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham will meet most of his opponents for the first time in a town hall sponsored by the Palmetto Family Council on May 30 in Columbia.

The Seneca Republican will attend the town hall with five of his six GOP challengers and one of two Democrats candidates. Republican candidates have met several times at various functions across the state without Graham.

A televised ETV debate among Republican Senate candidates is scheduled for June 7 -- just three days before the primary.

Tickets cost $50 to the Palmetto Family town hall at the Booker T. Washington Auditorium on the University of South Carolina campus.

Candidates scheduled to attend:

• Republicans - Det Bowers, Lee Bright, Richard Cash, Bill Connor, Lindsey Graham and Nancy Mace (Benjamin Dunn was not included in announcement.)
• Democrat - Jay Stamper (Brad Hutto was not included in announcement.)
