Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will face a “spirited” and “competitive” primary challenge, according to ally and former South Carolina GOP chairman Katon Dawson, who nonetheless predicted that the South Carolina lawmaker would win reelection in 2014.

“We look forward to a very successful season, but certainly it’ll be competitive,” Dawson told the Washington Examiner in a phone message replying to questions about the 2014 race.

“Senator Graham has been one of the most successful politicians at the ballot box and has cut the hide of a South Florida alligator when it comes to campaigns and elections,” Dawson also said.

Dawson, who runs a pro-Graham super PAC called the West Main Street Values fund, promised that his group would ”meet the independent expenditure front that’s being mounted against the senator.”
