Lindsey Graham opponent, Dave Feliciano, calls Senator ‘ambiguously gay’, says just a joke

Former Spartanburg police officer and challenger to senior US Senator in South Carolina, Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dave Feliciano is surprised that a comment he made about Graham has received so much attention

Feliciano said at a press conference Thursday at the State House concerning Graham, ‘It’s about time that South Carolina [says], “Hey, we’re tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina. We’re ready for a new leader to merge the Republican Party.”

After the attention he received, Feliciano says it was just a joke. No word from the Graham campaign on the comment and it’s not expected as Feliciano notes, “I’m just a gnat to them”.

There are six candidates in that Senate race trying to unseat Sen. Graham- Sen. Lee Bright, Anderson businessman Richard Cash and Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor, Nancy Mace, Columbia pastor Det Bowers and Feliciano.

Feliciano has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission but not raised any money.

A recent Winthrop University poll showed Graham with a large lead, but not quite 50 percent. However, the same poll showed one-third of likely Republican voters polled have not made up their minds, and the remaining challengers were in single digits. Graham has more than $7.5 million in his campaign accounts while none of his challengers has more than $300,000.
