Carolina Conservatives United start ‘Defeat Lindsey Graham’ campaign

Many South Carolina conservatives are not happy with their senior Senator, Lindsey Graham saying that Lindsey Graham is part of the DC culture that is crippling our nation.

The grassroots, non-profit political association based in South Carolina, Carolina Conservatives United (CCU) launched the Defeat Lindsey Graham campaign this week, taking the lead in ousting Lindsey Graham from the U.S. Senate.

As part of the campaign, CCU also released a new ad blasting him on his inconsistency on due process, privacy rights, free speech and other Constitutional principles.

“As residents of South Carolina and grassroots activists in the conservative movement, we are concerned not only about Lindsey Graham’s voting record on important issues but also the contempt he regularly displays toward small-government conservative citizens,” said Bruce Carroll, Chairman of CCU.

“We never know which Lindsey Graham will show up in Washington each day. He’s more likely to side with liberal Senate Democrats on important votes than with Senator Tim Scott or the South Carolina Republican Congressional delegation,” Carroll continued.

“For the voters of South Carolina — when the issues are important — Lindsey Graham is reliably unreliable,” said John Ciccone, Treasurer of CCU. “South Carolina needs a Senator who consistently represents the needs of our state, not the wishes of John McCain and Barack Obama.”

Carolina Conservatives United promotes fiscal conservative, pro-growth principles, federalism, and opposes “unfettered surveillance” by the government on its citizens. The group’s mission is to “support political candidates who support conservative values and oppose those who do not.”

If you want to contribute, CCU will be giving a Defeat Lindsey Graham bumper sticker to everyone who contributes more than $5.00 to the campaign.
