    Lee Bright uses social media quote a bit, and I don't beleive I've seen him take a position that Ron Paul probably wouldn't approve of. He is also outspoken when criticizing Graham.

    Here's an article which compares Graham to Bright:

    ...
    Which brings us to State Senator Lee Bright. Lee Bright has a stellar record in the state senate. He has been an outspoken critic of the current regime, a champion for Constitutional rights, and a true Conservative. Paul Conner from The Daily Caller referred to Bright as a “libertarian leaning Republican in the mold of former Texas Rep. Ron Paul.” Glenn Beck said that Bright reminds him of Ted Cruz. Of course since Harry Reid has inferred that Ted Cruz is a “Tea Party anarchist,” some people may not consider that a compliment.

    Lee Bright has a voting record that proves he is a true Conservative. Despite constant opposition from Democrat and RINO alike in the SC state senate, he has stuck to his principles and consistently been a resonating voice for liberty. He has stood strong on the value of the Constitution and its relevance today.

    While Lindsey Graham was ready to further infringe on the 2nd Amendment rights of his constituents, Lee Bright was the primary sponsor of the Constitutional Carry Bill in SC. He also sponsored legislation for term limits, sponsored the Freedom of Choice in Healthcare Act, was the sole sponsor of the Religious Freedom Act, was the primary sponsor of a bill that would allow permit holders to carry on college campuses, and was the sole sponsor of a bill that would protect SC from the enforcement of foreign laws. Many people call these efforts the result of paranoia, I call them diligent defense of our liberty.

    I think he's our best chance to defeat Graham.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    I think if Nancy Mace improves on her public speaking while campaigning around South Carolina, then she becomes the stronger candidate.

  12. #10
    Hopefully Bright will win. He's better than Nancy Mace IMO.

  13. #11
    Guys, don't forget that there's more than Bright and Mace running. Cash is still out there too, and while folks may not see him as a Liberty candidate- and I wouldn't disagree with them until I knew his policies- he was the first to officially declare and is known in SC. So I'm just saying we shouldn't limit Graham's challengers to as if it was just Bright and Mace.

  14. #12
    I would rather Mace win because she's a much stronger candidate in the general election, and probably more pure too. Bright endorsed Bachmann for President. Bright's business failure and perceived extremism won't play well, and he is doing a fine job in the State Senate. The ideal scenario would be for Mace to come in 2nd with Graham under 50%, and to have Bright to endorse and campaign for her to get the social conservatives out there.
    Authoritarianism and neoconservatism cannot be made great again.
    Trump was an enemy of Ron Paul, before he was an enemy of Rand Paul, before he was an enemy of the Freedom Caucus.
    One thing that he has remained consistent in is his hate of liberty and those who promote it.

    Bright endorsed Bachmann at first, but he switched to Paul later on.

    We have no record of who Mace endorsed in 2012, for all we know she could have supported Gingrich.

    Bright is purer than Mace because he believes the greatest threat to America is at home, not abroad, while Mace believes the opposite.

    This is South Carolina, the general election barely matters. We need someone who's rhetorically strong enough to take on Graham, making Graham look weak and effeminate by comparison. Unfortunately, Mace just can't do this. Even if she won, I doubt she'd be taken as seriously in the US Senate as Lee Bright.

    Mace also has her fair share of baggage because of FITS News, a site which includes soft pornography. Bright will not be seen as an extremist because many South Carolinians are Evangelicals and agree with him on social issues.

    I really don't see voters hammering Bright on his business or a site Mace wrote for- is she solely responsible for content? Because RPF had an ad about supporting Cory Booker. Counter-productive, don't you think?- since their primary goal is just getting rid of Graham. After all, Swann had this story up about Graham posing with Mace, yet now the story is unavailable.

    She was the co-owner and was probably aware of the sort of content that went up on it.

    From the limited bit I have seen, Bright is the one that seems to be the stronger candidate. Hopefully ALL of Graham's challengers become competitive.

    Overdue bump with some new ratings. Any disagree?

    In talking to others, Lee could pull this off if he keeps his forward progress.
