State Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, confirmed Monday that he’s had talks with fundraisers about a possible GOP primary challenge against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Graham has been pegged by the Club for Growth and others as a potential vulnerable primary target in 2014.
Much of the speculation about a possible challenger from the right of Graham has centered on state Sen. Tom Davis, a Beaufort Republican who served as former GOP Gov. Mark Sanford’s chief of staff.
Bright, a member of the state Senate’s “William Wallace Caucus” like Davis, said he’s focused on his service in South Carolina for the time being after being re-elected in November, but left open the possibility of a run against Graham.
