Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., talks to volunteers at the Aiken County Republican Party office on Tuesday, Oct. 14, 2014, in Aiken, S.C. Graham is spending his last weeks of the 2014 campaign trying to get his voters o vote instead of trying to get new voters to his side.

AIKEN, S.C. — As the days dwindle before the Nov. 4 election, both U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and his Democratic challenger Brad Hutto are trying to make sure their supporters get ready to vote.

Graham is crisscrossing South Carolina and visiting local party offices, expressing his gratitude to volunteers by name.

Graham says he feels good about his race and wants to help other Republicans win also.

Hutto says he still has a chance. The state senator from Orangeburg says if he can get the 45 percent to 47 percent a good Democratic challenger often gets in statewide elections in South Carolina, then independent candidate Thomas Ravenel and Libertarian Victor Kocher might draw enough votes away for an upset.
