U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-Seneca, is about to get another Republican primary challenger -- Columbia pastor Det Bowers, CNN reported.
From the CNN story:
Det Bowers, a well-connected Columbia pastor known for his oratory, put weeks of rumors to rest on Monday and said he is joining the five-person Republican Senate primary field.
“No question,” Bowers told CNN in a phone interview. “I am definitely running.”
Bowers said he filed fundraising paperwork with the Federal Election Commission in recent days and plans to make a formal announcement about his campaign soon. He also commiserated with donors in Washington and Texas last month, people close to him said.
“I understand the complexity of the task, but have every confidence this is exactly what I ought to be doing this season,” Bowers said.
