Even South Carolina Pubs Are Not Taking Senator Graham’s Presidential Run Seriously

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is the latest schlub to enter the GOP presidential field Monday.

But not even his home state publications are taking it too seriously.

1. One of the state’s largest newspapers is hardly acting like his cheerleader.


2. The State goes with an old, goofy yearbook photo. He hasn’t aged much, has he?


3. The Low Country Today really has its finger on the pulse of South Carolina politics. They go with Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley‘s presidential aspirations.


4. The Independent Mail makes the news just about as boring and low-key as possible. Nothing to see here, readers!



5. The Island Packet goes with the way more important news of a burning jeep.



6. Graham hails from Pickens County. So let’s see what those papers have to say about his presidential run, shall we?

The Pickens County Progress focuses on the death sentence… in Georgia.

Please note: The Courier runs with a teen who killed his father. As well as that famous local film Molly the Mule.
