According to Greenville County Republican officials, Buddy Witherspoon clearly won this poll and … it wasnâ€™t even close.
Is this a sign of things to come? Well, it has South Carolina’s The Shot worried. Expect more smears as the primary (June 10th) approaches.
The Southern Avenger is standing opposed to Graham, but judging by this post he won’t be backing Witherspoon due to Witherspoon’s stance on Iraq, which is a shame. Witherspoon is right on every other issue and is no war monger. Does the war in Iraq issue then truly outweigh the combination of every other issue?
Kyle Rogers of the CofCC responds under SA’s post:
Witherspoon has stated that he will not support war with Iran or any future war without a congressional declaration of war. However, he calls for a dignified end to the Iraq war in the US can save face and the majority of the people in SC can get behind.In twenty years no one will even car about the Iraq War or know where Iraq is on the globe for that matter. You want to sacrifice everything and let people like Lindsey open our borders to the entire 3rd world because Witherspoon is not anti-war enough for you?
Lindsey Graham has also publically attacked the Confederate flag while campaigning with McCain last January.
I hope SA listens. And lest we forget, war isn’t the only thing that kills – immigrants kill too.
The American Spectator has a brutal review of Graham’s candidacy.
