Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison, who is Black, is calling out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for referring to the Jim Crow era in the South as the “good old days of segregation,” a comment that appeared to be flippant but now is a likely campaign issue.

The comment drew a strong rebuke from Harrison, who is tied in most polls with Graham in the South Carolina Senate race.

"@LindseyGrahamSC just called segregation ‘the good old days.’ The good old days for who, Senator? it’s 2020, not 1920. Act like it," Harrison tweeted along with an 11-second video clip of Graham’s comment.
