Never heard of Sen. “Bright”? Maybe this will help.

First elected to the state Senate in 2008, Bright has become one of the Legislature’s leading Libertarian voices - a mantle Bright said Tuesday he would carry to the U.S. Senate if elected. For example, Bright said Tuesday that he had “a real problem with” security screenings at airports, arguing airlines - not federal employees - should decide whether to screen passengers, leaving passengers with “a choice of whether we get on that airplane or not.”

Bright formerly was the president of On Time Trucking, a Spartanburg-based transportation company. That company failed and is in court working through foreclosure proceedings, according to the (Spartanburg) Herald Journal. Bright’s campaign spokesman, Edmond Wright, said Tuesday that the case has been settled in a recent agreement with a bank.

Wright said Bright now does business development for BBD LLC. According to records at the S.C. secretary of state’s office, that company is registered to Michael Stevens, a Republican political operative.

In the state Senate, Bright has filed legislation that would make it a crime to enforce the new federal health care law in South Carolina and exempt S.C. guns from federal regulation. He recently gained national attention when he advocated for South Carolina to issue its own currency.

Bright has had an on-again, off-again political relationship with Republican Gov. Nikki Haley.

In 2012, Bright was one of two senators who voted to sustain Haley’s veto of $453,680 for South Carolina’s 15 rape-crisis centers, arguing the state should not pick and choose which nonprofits receive state money. Haley then campaigned for Bright during the Republican primary, helping him defeat former state Sen. John Hawkins, R-Spartanburg.

I can’t stand Graham but if this is the alternative, there’s something more wrong with South Carolina than I already though. I mean really, he’s free to voice his disagreements with Graham but really a community organizer for the MB?!?!? Lunatic fringe shit there and yet he’ll probably get at least 30% of the vote and may even win if he can link Graham with Obama.
