FORT MILL, S.C. — The first Jaime Harrison signs began appearing in front yards here over the summer, then multiplied as more residents of this heavily White, conservative suburb proudly proclaimed their support for the Black Democrat running for U.S. Senate.

“Is this really happening here?” said Bethany Pierce, 40, a librarian who has been a part of a wave of Democrats who have recently moved from nearby Charlotte.
In another Republican stronghold, two hours west in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, some say they feel betrayed by Sen. Lindsey O. Graham, the Republican incumbent who four years ago called Donald Trump a “kook” but has spent much of his time ever since cozying up to him.
I admire Harrison. His ads have run on TV here in the Phila-DE-S NJ market.
