(RoyalPatriot.com)- Senator Lindsey Graham was declared the winner of the South Carolina Senate race on Wednesday, fending off a challenge from Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison. The race was widely considered to be competitive, with Democrats spending huge sums on money on a campaign to unseat the well-known Republican.
Graham, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was declared the winner on Wednesday as votes were still being counted. The Associated Press and Decision Desk HQ were among the earliest to call the race for the Republican candidate after President Donald Trump was also declared the winner in Palmetto State.
They are half-right about #SCSenate as a party building exercise.
Only problem – They don’t understand the fact @SCGOP WIPED OUT Democrats in the 2020 election from the mountains to the sea, from Congress to State House to White House.
SC Republicans are stronger than ever! https://t.co/rH4XGYdI2I

On Tuesday night as results began rolling in, Senator Graham slammed the media and the pollsters for getting the election so wrong.
“To all the pollsters out there, you have no idea what you’re doing,” he said.

“To all the pollsters out there: You have no idea what you’re doing. And to all the liberals in California and New York, you wasted a lot of money.” https://t.co/KcHxUdb09u

“And to all the liberals in California and New York, you wasted a lot of money,” he added.
Graham successfully beat a $100 million campaign that Democrats believed might have been enough to take down the hugely well-known Republican.
In his acceptance speech, Senator Graham said that the Democrats “wasted a lot of money.”
“This is the worst return on investment in the history of American politics,” he added.
Graham will also no doubt be pleased that he won despite efforts by the “conservative” anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project to oust him.

Lindsey Graham proved it’s possible to fight against the media, the Democrats, and even the Republicans…and still win.
