Most of the candidates who said they planned to challenge U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham in the Republican primary this June have officially filed.

Spartanburg state Sen. Lee Bright and Berkeley County businesswoman Nancy Mace both turned in their paperwork Wednesday.

In addition to the three mentioned earlier the field in the GOP primary also includes Columbia-area minister Det Bowers, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor.

Filing for all state and local political offices closes at noon Sunday.
