Graham’s Entry Shakes Up Race in South Carolina

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) “barely registers in national surveys testing support for Republican presidential candidates. But here in South Carolina, which holds an early slot on the primary-election calendar, he is a household name who has won every race he’s run for 23 years,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“That makes Mr. Graham, who is expected to launch his presidential campaign on Monday, a wild card in an important state. Even if Mr. Graham doesn’t win here, his pull among voters, donors and campaign operatives is likely to change the calculation of other candidates.”
