Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America in support of Jaime Harrison’s (D. SC) U.S. Senate campaign:
This is huge:
Polls show Jaime Harrison is TIED 42% – 42% with Sen. Lindsey Graham in the race for South Carolina’s U.S. Senate seat.
Grassroots supporters like you have helped Jaime Harrison outraise Lindsey Graham at every turn. And now, as a result, this race is neck-and-neck.
But Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell are going to pull out all the stops to keep one of their staunchest allies in the Senate. Jaime’s counting on us to help capture this momentum and build a coalition of Black, brown, and progressive white voters across South Carolina.
Jaime Harrison has the experience, the platform, and the grassroots support to beat Lindsey Graham.
Born the son of a single teenage mom and raised by his grandparents, Jaime grew up in poverty but in a tight-knit community that helped each other. He promised his family he would go to law school to one day give back and help those who helped him.
After receiving a scholarship to Yale University and then attending Georgetown Law, Jaime went on to make history by becoming the first African American chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party.
Now, he’s running to do what Lindsey Graham hasn’t: deliver real, meaningful change to all South Carolinians.
This is an incredible opportunity to flip a historically red seat blue and send one of Trump’s closest allies home for good. Together, we can elect a true progressive champion for South Carolina.
