After announcing his bid for the South Carolina U.S. Senate race in 2019, Democrat Jaime Harrison is gaining steam in campaign financing, nearly neck-and-neck with incumbent Lindsey Graham. Still, the challenger is facing an “uphill battle,” said Danielle Vinson in a POLITICO article. Vinson, a Furman University alumna and politics and international affairs professor, said, “It’s still South Carolina, it’s still very much a Republican state.” She concedes the race will be more competitive than those in the past because voters now have a “credible candidate” in Harrison.
