Another candidate announced his opposition to Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R.-S.C.) in the 2014 primary on Veterans Day at a Tea Party meeting at the Myrtle Beach Friendly’s Restaurant.
Graham’s support for President Barack Obama’s policies and his devious practice of sabotaging conservatives on Capitol Hill, while campaigning back home as a conservative, drove him to declare a campaign to unseat him, said Bill Connor, an Orangeburg attorney, who is married with three children.
“I am trying to bring back smaller government and constitutional government,” he said.
Connor is a 23-year Army Ranger and infantry officer, now serving in the Army Reserve. After 12 years of active service, the Citadel graduate earned a law degree and is now in private practice.
