Lindsey Graham challenger
Nancy Mace´s biggest obstacle:
Her association with FITSNews

City Paper [Charleston, SC], by Chris Haire

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/3/2013 4:27:22 PM

Goose Creek resident Nancy Mace officially announced her campaign to defeat U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham in the 2014 Republican Party primary. The first woman to graduate from the Citadel, Mace is a well-regarded up-and-comer in Palmetto State politics, counting at least one notable South Carolina Tea Party fave as an ally, state Sen. Tom Davis (R-Beaufort). However, if Mace truly hopes to secure the SCGOP nomination, she will need to answer questions about another comrade, Will Folks of FITSNews. As the former co-owner of FITSNews, Mace presided over the South Carolina political gossip site during its most infamous days;

Comments:
Senator Graham´s luck may be holding. This lady sounds like a nasty piece of work.

What? She couldn´t be as destructive as

Article says Nancy had little or no control over editorial comment: I´d vote for Nancy over the traitor Graham any day of the week.

But, you can make sure the Democrats (Progressive Hate Machine) will Pick her as a target, freeze her, personalize her, and polarize her.

Attn, OP, be very cautious as to what you believe. Graham packs a lot of weight in SC and any newspaper would be crazy to cross him. Grahams home town is also my home town, I live about 5 miles from his house which he rarely occupies, I have supported him financially for many years. In the next primary, he will not get my vote!

Actually, the owner of a publication does have a lot of editorial control, no matter what anyone claims to the contrary. Mace will probably have to explain at some point why, when she was co-owner of FITnews, the publication went after Nikki Haley so viciously.

Notice how the RAT infested media whores always insist that a conservative Republican (especially from the Tea Party) must address, discuss, and separate themselves ... over and over and over again ... from any real, perceived or manufactured issue that the RAT infested media whores deem "newsworthy."

But when a Democrat acts like his or her party´s symbol, no Democrat is asked to account for their disgust or complaint about that ... think Nancy Pelosi, who told the media that they shouldn´t equate her with her old friend, the pervert mayor of San Diego; or how happy most Democrats would be to share the stage with the inciter of murder at Freddie´s (Al Sharpton).

I wish those in our party would start telling the RAT infested media whores to stick it where the sun don´t shine. It ain´t like saying that is going to get you any worse treatment.

#11 just curious. Where does Ms. Lindsey live? Does he spend most of his time in the swamp that is Boomtown? If he does not reside in the state, as he should, perhaps that will be newsworthy.

I´d really like to see him lose his seat. He has done so much damage crossing the aisle to the dark side of politics.

There are other challengers in the primary besides Mace.

Did you watch the video, the faux interview? It´s vile. Mace knew and approved, she was the co-owner and I doubt the business had more than a handful of employees. She should slink away.

Honestly, I have never seen a political ad this nasty and creepy.

Glad to see Ms. Lindsey is getting primaried. Whoever runs against him needs a thick skin and an ability to tun a psych ops campaign.
Look for the usual suspects to tear down any and all challengers to all RINOs.
Interesting to see how Liz Cheney´s candidacy has already had some positive effects. Term limits, People, term limits!

The ad was not vile, it was stupid, reminding me of the wisdom and wit of 14 year old boys. I then looked up the FITSNews site. I am really unimpressed with FITSNews.

What about the other candidates against Graham? Wonder what the Dems/estab Republicans will post against them? Strange how the Graham/McCain Republicans suit the Dems so well. Must have a lot in common. I notice posters who smear and deride conservatives never defend McCain or Graham. They use smears and sneaky attacks to go after anyone who speaks out against McGraham. Not once do any Republicans side with conservatives who challenge McGraham. Never. We know that the most constant attacks against conservatives come from establishment Republicans who support McCain and Graham. No one has any illusions about what is at the bottom of the attacks. Do I like Mace? I do not know. But typically, the RNC talking points are being spread by posters who seem to be either on the payroll or have some connection with the RNC/DNC.

Ad was disgraceful.
My question stands: what will the Republican attacks be against anyone other than Mace who challenges McGraham?
Guess I will wait and watch.
However, I would like for several SC residents to help us understand why Graham has so much backing in the state. It can´t be that voters think he is a good representative of their beliefs. Must be a case of follow the money/power/influence peddling.
Wish we could see some articles detailing where Graham gets his money. Who is donating? Must his opponents be the only ones who must defend their record or their past?
Find the facts that show how Graham stays ahead in campaign donations.

This is not a "Republican attack" against Nancy Mace, as I understand it. The piece is from a Charleston, SC, newspaper highlighting Nancy Mace´s background. Is there a lie in the article? When anyone steps forward to run for office, it is a given that there will be a critique of what the person´s record indicates and what the person stands for or against. Ms. Mace´s FITSNews went after a conservative Republican woman, Nikki Haley in a particularly vicious manner. Mace can stand behind it, she can condemn it, but she has to address it. I assume Senator Graham´s supporters or critics can speak for themselves.

Posters who think I am supporting Mace are not reading my words objectively. I am not asking those who condemn Mace to defend their condemnation I am asking those who support McGRaham to defend their support...plus I am posing the idea that no matter who the Republican is against McGraham..Republicans will attack them. Why are no Charleston news paper attacks on Graham? Simple. He is a Dem. Again I ask. Why do you support McCain and Graham, posters? Mace is not someone I know so am not defending. I am asking for attacks on Graham by media and Republicans in SC. Texas and Mississippi pros or cons do not matter in the end. It is SC voters I want to hear from. Who are Graham´s supporters?

I really want Lindsey gone - however we don´t want to repeat the mistake of Missouri and select the weakest possible GOP candidate to go against the Dem in the fall. Please, no more Akins. Admittedly, I don´t think, in SC, the Dem could win against any GOP selection but you never know. There are at least three challengers to SC´s current used-car salesman of a Senator. Go with the best - whoever that may be.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
