GOP Challenger's Ad Hits Lindsey Graham on Immigration, NSA Spying
South Carolina state Senator Lee Bright, who is primarying Republican incumbent Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), released an advertisement that hits Graham on his support for comprehensive immigration reform, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, and the National Security Agency's spying programs.
The ad, titled "It's Time," plays a clip of Graham stating that he hoped comprehensive immigration reform would pass because, "we need new workers coming to this country," even though the Congressional Budget Office found the Senate bill, which Graham helped write as part of the Gang of Eight, would lower the wages of working class Americans.
In the spot, which also hits the incumbent senator for supporting the nomination of Kagan, Graham also is shown saying, "It doesn't bother me one bit for the national security administration to have my phone number."
Bright proclaims South Carolinians have a duty to defend the Constitution and fight for limited government, saying there is "no reason we should allow the tyranny that has become the federal government to micromanage everything done in this state if we can do it without it."
