South Carolina attorney Richard Cash has announced his plans to mount a primary challenge against Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham next year.

Cash, who lost a close House GOP primary runoff election to Rep. Jeff Duncan in 2010, is the first candidate to jump into the fray against Graham, according to the Hill.

The lawyer is an advocate for conservative social views and says Graham is out of synch with the state’s citizens.

"I am running to replace Sen. Lindsey Graham because I believe that after 20 years in Washington he is out of touch with South Carolina values and voters,” Cash said on his website.

“Although Senator Graham might be hard-working and sincere, I cannot distinguish his core principles and can no longer trust his judgment. It is time for a new voice in Washington. We need a voice that represents Christian, conservative, and Republican principles instead of the latest bi-partisan 'deal' that simply makes matters worse."

The Hill reports that Graham is currently doing well in state opinion polls, but other Republicans are thinking about taking him on, including state Sen. Lee Bright and Nancy Mace, a supporter of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.
