Washington (CNN) – Be careful who you pay a compliment to in this town, it might just come back to bite you.
It's game on in the race for the Senate, and many established Republicans are finding themselves challenged by candidates running to the right of the old guard.
Senator Lindsey Graham is facing five under-funded Republican opponents in the South Carolina primary, and one of those challengers, attorney and army veteran Bill Connor, just launched a new ad using Graham's own words against him.
The 30-second spot uses footage from a 2012 speech in which Graham called Clinton "a role model" and one of the "greatest ambassadors for the American people that I've known in my lifetime."
Could a low-budget jab like that pack enough punch to shake up the race? Washington bureau chief for USA Today Susan Page and CNN political commentator and The New Yorker correspondent Ryan Lizza join CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" to discuss.
