South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has been a thorn in the side of conservatives.

He’s always managed to fend off Primary challenges in one of the reddest states.

But Lindsey Graham’s political future flashed before his eyes when he heard these four words.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has spent four terms in the Senate selling out conservatives despite representing one of the most Republican states in the country.

Conservatives in South Carolina have failed to come up with a serious Primary challenger despite widespread discontent with him in the state’s grassroots.

Graham has been sucking up to former President Donald Trump in recent years to try to insulate himself from getting primaried.

The former Never-Trumper’s all too convenient political conversion isn’t fooling conservatives in the state.

Graham, who’s backing Trump’s 2024 campaign, faced a loud chorus of boos and chants of “traitor” when he spoke at a rally the former President held in Pickens, South Carolina earlier this year.

Conservatives could be getting their wish of a top-tier challenger to Graham when he’s up for reelection in 2026.

Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) told Fox News Digital “I’m tired of Lindsey” when asked about potentially running against him.

He said that he’s giving serious thought to attempting to defeat the South Carolina Senator.

“Yeah, I’m tired of Lindsey,” Norman said. “I put it out, I’m looking at it.”

Norman is a member of the House Freedom Caucus and has consistently ranked as one of the conservative members of Congress.

“In politics today that’s a long time, the 2026 race, but I’m tired of Lindsey,” Norman continued. “He’s done a good job on good judges, but he should. He’s the one who locked us in on the spending spree. I’ve said it before it’s not new.”

Graham has spent the last several years signing off on some of the worst bills signed into law by President Joe Biden.

He voted in favor of Biden’s gun control bill after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas along with the $1 trillion infrastructure bill that raised taxes and funneled money to green energy.

Graham voted in favor of the bloated omnibus spending bill last December to continue to fund the government right when the new Republican House majority took office which could have forced Biden to make spending concessions.

“He handcuffed us until the following September,” Norman said.

Norman may have tipped his hand on a phone call that was overheard by reporters.

“Graham won’t tell him that because I’m going to run against him,” Norman said on a phone call before he met with reporters.

Norman would be the most credible candidate to challenge Graham in a primary since he was first elected to the Senate in 2002.

Now 2026 could be the end of the line for Lindsey Graham after years of stabbing conservatives in the back.
