Lincoln Project releases mocking ad slamming Lindsey Graham over his campaign’s financial worries
The Lincoln Project has released its latest video ad targeting Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in comical fashion.
On Friday, the Republican anti-Trump group took to Twitter with the release of the video as they mocked Graham's cry over being outfundraised by his opponent. The video ad paints Graham as a charity case in desperate need of support.
By the middle of the video, a banner appears with the text "www.SaveLindsey.com." A cell phone number is also included but the disclaimer at the bottom of the page is also a focal point. It reads, "All of this money goes to the Lincoln Project. This is obviously a parody."

The video came just one day after Graham's Fox News interview on Thursday evening. According to Graham, he is getting hit from many different angles as he faces an uphill battle to be re-elected.
Graham also expressed concern about the accelerated fundraising in support of his Democratic opponent Jamie Harrison who is expected to reach historical campaign fundraising numbers. If Harrison's campaign succeeds in raising the projected $100 million, he will surpass Graham's previous record nearly ten times over.
"My opponent will raise $100 million in the state of South Carolina," Graham said. "The most money ever spent in the history of the state on a Senate race in this state was by me in 2014 when I spent $13 million."
Graham also explained how the accelerated fundraising effort translates for him.
He added, "I'm being killed financially. This money is because they hate my guts."
Poll projections also signal trouble for Graham and multiple other Republican senators, per Newsweek. According to the latest poll results they appear to be underperforming in the polls compared to President Donald Trump who also has less-than-favorable poll results.
