Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Brad Hutto is bypassing his primary challenger in a new ad and targeting GOP incumbent Lindsey Graham.
"Tell Lindsey Graham we want out Senate seat back," Hutto, a state senator from Orangeburg, says in the ad.
Hutto still faces newcomer Jay Stamper in the June 10 primary, though Stamper has been rejected by the party leadership.
"The politicians in Congress stopped listening to us a long time ago," Hutto says in the ad. "Our own senator would rather chase national headlines to work to make things better here in South Carolina."
The television spot will run through Tuesday, June 10th.
