COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham has agreed to debate his challengers three days before South Carolina’s Republican primary.

The event scheduled June 7 will be hosted by South Carolina Educational Television and several of the state’s newspapers.

It would be the first time Graham has debated his opponents on the campaign trail. Some of the six candidates challenging him for the Republican nomination have previously debated each other.

Two Democrats - state Sen. Brad Hutto of Orangeburg and Jay Stamper of Irmo - and Libertarian Victor Kocher also are running for Graham’s Senate seat.

Graham is seeking a third term in the Senate. His Republican opponents say he isn’t conservative enough for South Carolina and tries too hard to compromise with Democrats.
