Bob Conley won the South Carolina Democratic Senate primary by surprise. But with Conley receiving no money from Democrats and Lindsey Graham’s five million war chest, it is a David and Goliath battle.

A national audience can tune in to see Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham take on his long-shot Democrat challenger Bob Conley on South Carolina ETV.

ETV said Monday that cable channel C-SPAN will carry the Oct. 11 debate at 8 p.m. live.

Graham is running for his second term against Conley, a little known engineer and flight instructor in North Myrtle Beach.

C-SPAN also is carrying the Oct. 1 debate with Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Brown and Democrat challenger Linda Ketner.

ETV spokesman Rob Schaler says C-SPAN also has asked to carry that 7 p.m. debate live.
