Democrats scramble to wrest control of US Senate

Jaime Harrison, Democratic challenger for the U.S. Senate race in South Carolina, put up a valiant fight against incumbent Lindsey Graham, who now embarks on his fourth term in office. Danielle Vinson, a Furman University politics and international affairs professor, says the race will change South Carolina politics going forward. “Jamie Harrison has energized voters who have felt for years now that their vote doesn’t matter very much,” she said in a Courthouse News Service report. “… this race puts people on notice that Democrats can compete. It means Republicans had better be careful about not taking those voters for granted.”
