U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has drawn another primary challenger. South Carolina Republican state Sen. Lee Bright came out swinging, calling Graham a “community organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood,” according to The State.

“During the [congressional] recess, when I would hope that he would be around folks in South Carolina, getting their feelings on so many issues that affect their lives, he has instead chosen to take his time to be a community organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood and that concerns me,” Bright told supporters in a conference call, The State reported. “He needs to spend more time listening to what the brothers in South Carolina have to say.”

Bright was referring to a recent trip to Egypt by Graham and U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., at the request of Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. The senators were sent to help calm things down after the Egyptian military’s overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi, a Muslim Brotherhood leader, and to reinforce the message that the United States would like to see a democratically elected government installed.

Graham’s spokesperson did not respond directly to Bright’s comments, but told The State that Graham “has a proven track record of protecting our conservative values and fighting for South Carolina,”  citing his 92 score from the American Conservative Union and “A” rating from the National Rifle Association.

Graham is already facing a primary challenge from businessman Richard Cash and businesswoman and author Nancy Mace. U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., will also be on the ballot in 2014, but he has yet to draw a challenger.
