The Lincoln Project, a conservative super PAC opposed to President Trump and several incumbent GOP lawmakers, released a new ad Friday mocking Sen. Lindsey Graham after the South Carolina Republican said he was “getting killed financially” by his Democratic challenger, Jaime Harrison.
“Every single hour in South Carolina, Lindsey Graham is violently out-fundraised,” the ad states, playing Sarah McLachlan’s song “Angel” over various images of Graham. The song has been featured in a number of television commercials for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
“Lindsey Graham won in 2014,” the ad states. “But this year, it might be too late.”
Appearing on the network's Hannity show last night, the Republican added that he was “getting overwhelmed” and pleaded with viewers to help him boost his fundraising efforts.
Reacting to Graham's remarks on the state of his campaign coffers, Harrison tweeted: “Anybody else get the sense that Lindsey Graham just realized he's going to lose on November 3rd?”
The Democratic Senate candidate later tweeted the hashtag “#LindseyGrahamIsLosing” as he called for supporters to “keep it that way” by donating more cash to his campaign.

And of course, I’ll always love U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA):
Specifically, she called out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for surrendering the Senate’s constitutional duty to offer advice and consent by announcing he’s already in favor of the nominee ― even though that person hasn’t been named.“Lindsey Graham has simply said, ‘Donald Trump has my proxy on this, Senate doesn’t need to look at it,’” Warren told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. “If the president is good, Lindsey Graham is good.”She added:
“There’s a man with a spine ― a spine kept in a box somewhere else because he certainly doesn’t have it to exercise for himself.”
Let's show that America hates Graham’s guts and flip South Carolina Blue. Click below to donate and get involved with Harrison, Biden and their fellow South Carolina Democrats campaigns:
