South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison raised more than a quarter-million dollars within 24 hours of announcing his bid to unseat three-term Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Harrison announced on Twitter that his campaign raised $270,000 in the first 24 hours of launching his bid, with an average contribution of $29.
Harrison is a former aide to Rep. James Clyburn and the former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party.
He serves as an associate chairman of the Democratic National Committee after losing his race to become DNC chair in 2017.
Harrison announced his campaign to “Send Lindsey Home” Wednesday, seeking to become the first South Carolina Democrat elected to the Senate since 1998.
“Here’s a guy who will say anything to stay in office,” Harrison said in the video.
“Lindsey Graham can’t lead us any direction because he traded his moral compass for petty political gain.”. »
