Nancy Mace is one of the challengers to Lindsey Graham in the Republican primary, along with Richard Cash. There probably will be others.

Mace is a newbie as a candidate, although she’s been involved as a political consultant for years, and also co-founded the controversial FITS News website.

Lindsey Graham deserves a primary challenge. He has several million in the bank, and surely will receive a lot more from those who want to keep him fighting for amnesty (assuming he doesn’t pull it off prior to the election).

This is a follow up to my post After passing immigration amnesty, Republicans should go on an overseas apology tour.
