#GayPatriotForSenate: Could ‘just a blogger’ take on Lindsey Graham in SC?


After attending Obama’s Wednesday night GOP schmooze-fest with the rest of “yesterday’s mashed potatoes,” Sen. Lindsey Graham sneeringly called Sen. Rand Paul’s epic filibusterridiculous.” The South Carolina senator’s latest absurdity landed him a spot on many conservatives’ laminated you-know-what list.

McCain (D-AZ) Graham (D-SC)

To whom can I donate that is primarying @lindseygrahamsc ?

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) March 7, 2013

Lindsay Graham couldn’t wait to try & crush the GOP momentum. He’s reminding conservatives why he’s such a problem bit.ly/VKE4cl

The bufoon, @lindseygrahamsc , is up for re-election in 2014. Time to find a reallygood candidate to run against him in the primary.

Grassroots conservatives have finally had enough of Graham and his pal John McCain. Calls to #PrimaryGraham are ramping up and at least two South Carolina bloggers — GayPatriot’s Bruce Carroll and RedState’s Ben Howe — expressed interest in becoming a pesky thorn in Graham’s way-too-comfortable side.

Expect either me or @gaypatriot to challenge Lindsey Graham in primaries. #seriously

— Ben Howe (@BenHowe) March 8, 2013

Who has a better chance? #GayPatriotForSenate in SC … or Ashley Judd for Senate in Kentucky?Asking for a friend.

On Friday, Townhall.com editor Katie Pavlich tweeted that she’s “semi-seriously considering” a future run against Sen. McCain in Arizona. With South Carolina conservatives buzzing about unseating Graham, looks like it’s time for the #GayPatriotForSenate trial balloon:

If I can get a good fundraiser, I will run. #GayPatriotForSenate RT @rlwood1: Now can we all please try to convince GP to primary Graham

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) March 7, 2013

[email protected]ablativmeatshld I’m serious. If enough people want me to file papers and I can get monetary help, I will run against Graham in 2014

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) March 7, 2013

[email protected]americnelephant If no one serious challenges him, yes. He should not get a free pass. #GayPatriotForSenate

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) March 7, 2013

I will conduct my entire campaign in a transparent manner, using Twitter as my communications vehicle.#GayPatriotForSenate

#GayPatriotForSenate RT @politico: Lindsey Graham’s very bad day on Twitter politi.co/ZiULvi

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) March 8, 2013

So, what can we expect from Senator GayPatriot ?

If elected, I will read Tweets daily from voters in South Carolina on the floor of the US Senate. #GayPatriotForSenate #SCpol

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) March 7, 2013

If elected, I would introduce legislation to end pensions for Members of Congress & Federal bureaucrats. #GayPatriotForSenate

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) March 7, 2013

Is someone keeping track of my promises? 🙂#GayPatriotForSenate

@conservativezak My position: Voters/Legislators should decide on defining marriage; I prefer civil unions and religious liberty protections

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) March 9, 2013

Whether #GayPatriotForSenate will evolve into something more than a hashtag remains to be seen. But tongue-in-cheek or not, conservatives on Twitter love the idea and the endorsements are rolling in.

After all the @grahamblog nonsense, I nominate @gaypatriot to primary that punk. #GayPatriotForSenate

— Kemberlee Kaye (@red_red_head) March 7, 2013

@gaypatriot for Senate, because I can’t wait to hear homophobic slurs coming from MSNBC and the NYT. #GayPatriotForSenate

#GayPatriotForSenate is so bipartisan, he could even unite Gamecock & Tiger fans to restore our constitutional liberties. @gaypatriot #SCpol

— FormerDeminTX (F) (@FormerDeminTX) March 7, 2013

Uniting Gamecock and Tiger fans? Now that would be impressive.

Future SC Senator @gaypatriot & future AZ Senator @katiepavlich? That’s some #changeyoucanbelievein.
