MORNING BUZZ: T-Rav enters US Senate fray + end of an era at USC

Charleston reality-television star and former state treasurer Thomas Ravenel on Monday submitted a petition to run against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham as an independent. Asked if voters can take him seriously after he served jail time and probation for a felony cocaine charge, Ravenel said, “In the business community, I have a sterling record. I know I’m an imperfect messenger, but my personal life is my problem. Lindsey Graham’s public life is your problem.”
