Democratic South Carolina Senate nominee Jaime Harrison on Wednesday slammed Sen. Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamDemocratic Senate campaign arm outraises GOP counterpart in September Hug or heresy? The left's attack on Dianne Feinstein is a sad sign of our times Democrats seem unlikely to move against Feinstein MORE's (R-S.C.) decision to pull out of debate scheduled for Wednesday.

“This is probably the most historic Senate race in the history of this state, and to have Sen. Graham ducking and dodging [the debate] is really sad, but it's a testament to who he is,” Harrison said on SiriusXM’s “The Laura Coates Show.” “He believes that he represents the interest in Washington, D.C., instead of representing the interests of the people in South Carolina. And that's why he's on the verge of getting that one-way ticket back home.”

In a statement provided to WYFF, Graham’s campaign said the debate would need to be postponed due to Senate votes scheduled in Washington, including the vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney BarrettAmy Coney BarrettSupreme Court's Pennsylvania mail ballot ruling tees up test for Barrett Schumer says he had 'serious talk' with Feinstein, declines to comment on Judiciary role Progress, but no breakthrough, on coronavirus relief MORE to the Supreme Court.

Speaking to Coates on Wednesday, Harrison said, “We are building something because we are focusing like a laser on the people in the state. As I said so many times on this campaign trail, we're about to close the chapter on the old South and write a brand new book called the new South, one that is bold, that is inclusive and diverse.”

This would have been the second time the two candidates debated. A previous debate was canceled after Graham's and Harrison’s teams disagreed over a requirement to take a COVID-19 test beforehand. Harrison said he would not participate in the debate without a negative COVID-19 test from his opponent, which Graham declined to provide.
