Democratic Senate hopeful Jaime Harrison, appeared on CNN on Monday to speak about his chances of defeating South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham in this year’s election.
Harrison expressed his confidence and noted that Vice President Mike Pence wouldn’t be parachuting into South Carolina this week to stump for Graham if the campaign were confident in his chances.
“You know, I don’t think I’m old enough to remember the last time a presidential candidate or vice presidential candidate traveled to South Carolina in the last week of an election,” he said. “When he has to call in that type of favor, it says that Lindsey Graham is in trouble, that he’s going to lose his race!”
Harrison then went on to compare the differences between his campaign and Graham’s campaign.
“Lindsey Graham is trying to scare people to support him,” he said. “I’m trying to inspire people to support me. That’s a very different contrast, and in the end, I think hope is going to beat fear.”
