GOP Super PAC To Dump $10M Into SC Senate Race

McClatchy reports:

A Republican super PAC is preparing a massive ad blitz in South Carolina, hoping to boost GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham in a re-election campaign that has become unexpectedly competitive despite the state’s rightward lean.

Senate Leadership Fund plans to spend $10 million over three weeks starting Saturday on TV and radio ads in the state, an enormous late push into the state the group’s leader says is reflective of the massive spending disparity between Graham and his Democratic opponent, Jaime Harrison.

Harrison has significantly outraised Graham thanks to a surge of small-dollar online donations, creating a financial advantage in the race even before a Democratic super PAC this week announced its own ad campaign in South Carolina totalling $6.5 million.
