Five states from Maine to Nevada hold primaries on Tuesday, but the marquee race is in South Carolina, where two-term GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham is hoping to avoid a runoff. The Palmetto State showdown comes as fellow Republican Sen. Thad Cochran is fighting for his political life in Mississippi. Last week, he was forced into a runoff against a challenger backed by the tea party. But for Graham, any comparison with Cochran is short lived even though many tea party activists and other grassroots conservatives in South Carolina despise him and other local organizations in the state have censured him in recent years.
