South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to Win Reelection over Well-Funded Challenger Jaime Harrison

By National Review

Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) will win reelection to a fourth term, the Associated Press has declared.The victory for Graham comes after speculation that Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison might have been able to pull off an upset win.
