USA. U.S.

The second debate will be Friday between Lindsey Graham and Jaime Harrison, Democratic Challenger, even though campaign conflicts about COVID-19 have sparked questions as to whether the match will proceed at all.

The discussion, set for 7 p.m., threatened Harrison to tank.

In Spartanburg, about Graham's exposure problems to other GOP senators who have recently screened the COVID-19 positive.

In a speech, Harrison, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, called for Graham to be checked before the conference. He and the facilitators had planned to do so before, and he "would not encourage politics to make my relatives, my campaign team, Sen. Graham 's employees, and the media danger needless."

The officials of the movement in Graham said that before sitting with the The Post and Courier newspaper reporters at the case on Wednesday Harrison had not requested a hearing.

Graham said he will engage in the discussion because of his statements to have "taken very seriously the coronavirus challenge to our state and country."

"Coronavirus gravity is not the improvement, but the danger from attention from Mr. Harrison has shifted," Graham said.

"It is his determination, not mine, if Mr. Harrison is joining the debate tomorrow.

I'll be back. "I'll be there.

Harrison then stated that the Test would "offer peace of thought," as he encountered Graham and other Senate Republicans who screened for coronavirus, to people who had come into touch and Graham.

Graham said both camps decided to rules to respect federal coronavirus recommendations and had their pre-debate temperatures taken.

For all of the meetings no live audience is required and the participation of the media is restricted.

Before the first interview, both candidates checked negative and Graham said that the doctor responsible for Congressional wellbeing observed Thursday that no extra checks were needed.

A third debate is planned for the end of this month, while politics in Washington may exacerbate it.

The role of Shepherd Trump's candidate of the US Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, is Graham, as member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Audiences begin on Monday, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refrains from other legislative work after some COVID-19 senators' positive checks.

With polls showing dead heat, both campaigns earned more than $30 million per capita and tens of thousands of increased investment from outside parties, Graham-Harrison has escalated the race.

In the two days that followed the discussion, Harrison raked $1.5 million. Donations around the nation will keep the money running in a campaign that's one of the nearest to this cycle.

The Republicans dominate all the legislative houses, all government agencies and half of the state's congressional positions, by double-digit Trumpe carried South Carolina over Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

In his reelection column, South Carolina would be presumed to be secure.
