Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a close ally of President Donald Trump, has served more than two decades in Congress.

He’s up for re-election in 2020, and for the first time is facing a serious challenge to his seat. The fight comes from Jaime Harrison, a young black Democrat and a relative newcomer to the national stage. Harrison has raised more money than any Democrat running for the seat in state history, but he’s still a relative unknown.

In this episode of Into America, Trymaine Lee talks to Harrison and Graham’s campaign, to find out why both sides believe they will win. And we visit the largely Republican city of Greenville, to talk to a voter who has supported Graham in the past and is now backing Harrison.
