Subject: Introduction from Nancy Mace, running to unseat Lindsey Graham in SC
Greetings. I am writing to make a quick introduction. I am a
conservative Republican running to unseat Senator Lindsey Graham in
South Carolina. Attached is a one page PDF to give you more information
about myself and the campaign. My website is nancymace.org.
I would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about this race.
Nancy Mace (Ms Mace then left me her cell phone number to call her but I am not publishing it!)
This was my response to the first woman cadet at The Citadel who is challenging the vicious, militarist, prowar Senator Lindsey Graham.

I certainly hope you win against one of the most irresponsible senators in modern history. Mr Graham has no sense of what American power should be used for, is a militarist of unbearable arrogance and an individual who is given a mouthpiece that he has neither earned nor deserved. While he has shown some independence in approving Sotomayor and Kagan, he is truly an individual that is unfit for the senate.
I live in Chicago and not in the state that gave the world Strom Thurmond and John C. Calhoun.
I am a very progressive independent but will say this: you are a lot prettier than the warmonger who wants to bomb everybody. I mean no disrespect and think sexism is egregious but before I would give you money, I would want your views on:
raising the minimum wage
the Affordable Care Act
Representative James Clyburn, Assistant Democratic Leader in the House of Representatives. See image below.
However, if you want I am available at tel XXX but please no dissemination of my number.
Do you ever come to Chicago? I would be happy to talk to you and take you out for dinner at a 4 star restaurant.
I take you seriously and am flattered you contacted me.
At this point, I have not gotten a response but good luck: you can’t be worse than Senator Graham!
