Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is pleading for campaign contributions.

During a Thursday appearance on television’s “Fox & Friends," Graham said his campaign needs financial help.

He noted that ActBlue, the online donation platform used by most campaigns of Democratic Party candidates, brought in $150 million in three days after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  

“My opponent raised $6 million (in that time frame)," he said. “I’m being outspent four-to-one. Outraised five-to-one,”

And he urged viewers to go to, “LindseyGraham.com if you want to help me close the gap. I need some help.”

Asked about Democrat opponent Jamie Harrison raising more money, Graham responded: “It’s ActBlue money.

“My opponent will raise almost $100 million in the state of South Carolina. The most money ever spent in the history of the state on a Senate race was by me in 2014 when I spent 13 million.

“And God bless Justice Ginsburg, we are celebrating her life — I appreciate (President Donald Trump) waiting (until) Saturday to announce the replacement — but I’m being killed financially.”

He claimed the “wrath of the left is coning down one me” because he dared to help Trump.

And he added: “To those who are listening who want to help Republicans fight back, get on our website, it’s LindseyGraham.com. Five or ten bucks goes a long way if enough people do it.”

 According to the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics,  Graham’s chances of reelection are in "greater danger of an upset" than they were a few weeks ago.
