Lindsey Graham challenger calls the senator 'ambiguously gay' Published: March 15, 2014

Police officer and political novice Dave Feliciano, who is contesting the Republican primary to unseat Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), said on the steps of the South Carolina state House Thursday that Graham is "ambiguously gay."

The State reports that Feliciano made the comment as he participated in a news conference announcing that four of Graham's challengers will support whomever ends up in a run-off with the senator, if Graham does not garner 50 percent of the primary vote.

"It's about time that South Carolina [says] hey, 'We're tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina,'" Feliciano said. "'We're ready for a new leader to merge the Republican Party. We're done with this.' This is what it's about, all of us coming together and saying, one way or the other, one of us is going to be on that ballot in November."
