In emails to potential supporters, Lindsey Graham has called his opponent Jaime Harrison’s fundraising “record-shattering,” and cited Harrison campaign polls showing Graham trailing. As he continues to beg for financial support, he’s declared a funding emergency.
In an email to supporters Friday night, Graham complained and begged, saying that Harrison’s “record-shattering” fundraising is “the largest quarterly haul in Senate race history.”
Fellow American, we knew this would be a tough year – with twice as many Republicans up for re-election as Democrats, but the massive liberal fundraising push is making it even tougher!
Please help us close the gap.
The apparent desperation in the Graham camp was even more apparent when this was followed Saturday morning with another email pleading for supporters to give to an emergency campaign fund.
Fellow American – Jaime Harrison’s campaign just released their latest internal polling – showing Senator Graham behind his liberal opponent by 2%.
It could be the $57 million Jaime Harrison has raised in the last three months – or the $60 million he’s spent to attack Senator Graham, but this poll clearly suggests the race is CLOSE.
His Emergency Response Fund page returns to his complaint from his debate with Jaime Harrison — “They hate me.”
The Left hates Lindsey Graham so much that they are spending millions to defeat him on November 3rd…
