Columbia, S.C. — Jaime Harrison, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement in response to news that the Trump administration will soon be ending federal funding for COVID-19 testing sites:

“This is what happens when leaders like Lindsey Graham take their eye off the ball,” Harrison said. “We have reached the darkest chapter of our state’s battle against this deadly pandemic, and Lindsey Graham’s consistent silence has left South Carolinians defenseless. He is busy with partisan investigations, while his state breaks new case records on an almost daily basis and hospital beds fill up. We have ranked at or near the bottom of testing per capita for months, but after 25 years in Washington, the new Lindsey Graham did not even lift a finger to get South Carolina a federal testing facility. Well, now we might not ever get that chance – just as this virus starts to rear its head in every corner of South Carolina.”
