Tuesday, Lindsey Graham challenger Jaime Harrison tweeted:

I can’t believe the news that Marie just surprised me and my boys with..

NEW POLLING HAS US *ONE* POINT BEHIND @LindseyGrahamSC

No one gave us a shot. Yet, here we are, giving a 25 year incumbent the fight of his political life.

Three months to go. Let’s do this.

USAToday reports Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill, is locked in a virtual tie with his Democratic challenger, Jaime Harrison, according to a Morning Consult poll released Tuesday.

The poll found the incumbent senator from South Carolina with a one-percentage-point lead in his quest for a fourth term, which is within the survey’s 4-point margin of error.

Graham campaign spokesman T.W. Arrighi downplayed the results of the poll, which was conducted from July 24 to Aug. 2 from among 741 likely voters. Arrighi told The Post and Courier that the poll “excludes the opinions of numerous voters” and said its findings “are far different than what our internal polling shows.”

“But one thing is consistent in all polling,” he said. “The more voters find out about how radically liberal Jaime Harrison is, the less they support him.”

On Twitter, Harrison shared a video of his wife, University of South Carolina law professor Marie Boyd, surprising him with the poll results,

‘No one gave us a shot. Yet, here we are, giving a 25 year incumbent the fight of his political life,” Harrison said in the tweet. “Three months to go. Let’s do this.”
