Conservative influencer and veteran Graham Allen announces that he will be challenging Tom Rice in the race for South Carolina’s 7th Congressional District…
Graham Allen, who was born in Caledonia, Mississippi, enlisted in the United States Army as a teen where he served two tours overseas and went on to do 11 years serving in the United States military.
Graham rose to fame after launching a video “ranting” about the disrespect that came with Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the National Anthem.
After four years of being a prominent conservative influencer, Graham Allen, decided to move back to South Carolina where he was stationed prior to his fame as a recruiter for the U.S. Army.
During his time in South Carolina, Graham Allen built a pro-American apparel company called Nine Twelve United, which seeks to unite the country as one just like it was on the day after one of America’s worst tragedies.
He and his business partner, a veteran who graduated from West Point, saw the division in the country and wanted to bring a pro-American brand to light that would stand up for patriotism and American values that so many seek to divide and demonize today.
Graham and his wife Ellisa Allen created the Dear America Foundation which “serves those who served” and is dedicated to filling the needs of the men and women who served this country in uniform. A portion of ALL proceeds that are made from Graham Allen’s company Nine Twelve United goes to the Dear America Foundation as well.
Calls for Graham to challenge Tom Rice in his congressional seat grew when the “representative” voted to impeach former President Donald Trump despite his district voting overwhelmingly to re-elect Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
Graham’s famous catch phrase, “for those who can’t, I’ll say it for you,” has been a significant undertone in his time as an influencer and perfectly sums up why he is looking to unseat Tom Rice.
“If the people are no longer represented by their elected officials, then that elected official no longer has the capability to serve as their representative,” Graham Allen said.
The campaign for Graham Allen’s congressional run released a statement that you can see in the tweet below:

Tom Rice abandoned his duty to represent the conscience of the voters of his district when he sided with Nancy Pelosi to support the sham impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. South Carolina’s 7th Congressional District voters overwhelmingly endorsed President Trump’s America First agenda twice at the ballot box. But Congressman Rice betrayed their confidence when he caved to the far-left mob and their enablers in Big-Tech and the mainstream media.” Graham Allen’s press release states.
The press release goes on to say:
Sadly, it is all too often we see politicians like Tom Rice, who, after nearly a decade in office, tend to lose touch with their voters and begin to substitute their interests over that of their constituents. The fact is we can no longer count on Congressman Rice. We don’t know when he’ll cave to Pelosi and Biden next as they throw open our borders, make it easy to cheat in our elections, and tax and spend us into oblivion while working to remake America into a socialist nation.
Unlike Tom Rice, the sacred oath to defend our Constitution and country from threats foreign and domestic means something to me. Just as I did abroad, I will honor my oath as a member of Congress.
Voters can depend on me to faithfully discharge my duty to:
Protect our Constitutional Rights, including the First and Second Amendment;
Restore the integrity of our elections and hold bad-actors accountable; and
Defend our country from foreign threats, including securing our borders and stopping financial warfare perpetrated against Americans through lousy trade deals and anti-growth economic policies.
And, voters can count on me to unapologetically stand by President Trump and his America First agenda because it restored the future of America, the greatest country the world has ever known.
So help me God.”
The press release cites that Tom Rice’s constituents have not been properly represented which many may agree with as the outrage from Tom Rice’s vote to impeach Donald Trump only surges. In fact, some are trashing Tom Rice’s signs and calling him a traitor for voting to impeach Donald Trump. We recently reported on some of the signs in Tom Rice’s district being defaced which you can see by CLICKING HERE.
The heavily red 7th district of South Carolina is going to be one intense race as Graham Allen joins many others who will fight to unseat Tom Rice. However, Graham’s experience in the military and as a voice for many Americans may prove to be the nail in the coffin for Tom Rice’s political career.
