Graham Reports $3.6 Million On Hand for November Election

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham’s re-election campaign has nearly $3.6 million on hand for the November general election.

The 2nd Quarter financial report, filed yesterday with the Secretary of the Senate, comes on the heels of Graham’s convincing 67–33 percent win in the June 10 Republican Primary.

The report covers the period May 22 – June 30, 2008. Graham raised $294,474.06 and spent $1,220,537.70 during the five-week period. He has $3,593,259.72 cash-on-hand.

Included in the disbursements for the period is a transfer of $260,000 from Graham’s campaign to the National Republican Senatorial Committee.  The funds will be used to help Republican candidates for Senate across the nation.


“Senator Graham is deeply appreciative of the strong support leading into and following the primary election,” said campaign manager Scott Farmer.  “Lindsey Graham’s resounding victory in the primary was an endorsement of his mainstream, traditional conservatism. Republican voters in South Carolina made a statement that they will reward candidates who tackle the tough issues facing our nation.

“Lindsey Graham has been a leader when it comes to providing solutions to the energy crisis, winning the War on Terror, strengthening our economy, and reducing wasteful federal spending,” said Farmer. “In the general election campaign, we will highlight his common-sense conservative record, ability to work across the aisle, and his many accomplishments as South Carolina’s United States Senator.”

Below are the summary figures from the financial report.

Lindsey Graham for Senate Cash-on-Hand as of May 21, 2008: $4,519,323.36

Total Receipts for the Period Covering May 22 – June 30, 2008: $294,474.06
