Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham's prospects of retaining his seat are declining as he looks to stave off his better-funded Democratic challenger, Jaime Harrison, according to a recent election forecast.

According to The Economist's forecast for the race, Graham's chance of winning is 59 percent, dipping compared to his numbers in recent months.

Graham has bemoaned the level of funding his rival Harrison has pulled in for the race, having said donors are backing the Democrat to "take me out.".

Harrison said his money is "coming from the people," who he said are "tired of Lindsey Graham playing Washington political games," in an interview with MSNBC.

Newsweek has contacted Graham and Harrison for comment regarding the forecast and the outlook of the race. »
