Top Graham Donor Flips Support To Dem Challenger

The Charleston Post & Courier reports:

A former top South Carolina business executive and supporter of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham has decided to back the Republican incumbent’s Democratic challenger in his 2020 re-election race.

Richard Wilkerson, the former chairman and president of Michelin’s Greenville-based North America operations, said he chose to endorse Democrat Jaime Harrison because of his experience working with him while Harrison lobbied on the company’s behalf in Washington, D.C.

Michelin is one of South Carolina’s largest companies, employing almost 10,000 people in the state. The Graham Senate campaign declined to comment.
