Lindsey Graham Allies Will Form Super PAC
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will have a friendly super PAC on his side during his 2014 reelection campaign.
Graham allies will soon form a super PAC called the "West Main Street Values Fund," former South Carolina Republican Party chairman Katon Dawson said Wednesday.
"You'll be hearing more about it in the next few weeks," Dawson said. "We'll be pro-Lindsey all the way."
Graham's Senate voting record has drawn the ire of some conservative forces, most notably the Club for Growth, and put him at risk of facing a serious primary next year. Most potential Republican challengers have opted not to seek Graham's seat, though state Sen. Lee Bright -- a favorite of the state Club for Growth affiliate -- recently expressed interest. If Graham does face a challenge, the super PAC will add further resources to his side to go along with the $4.4 million Graham already has stockpiled in his own campaign account.
