The former Democratic president made his pitch about Jaime Harrison, the Democratic challenger vying to unseat Graham, in a video posted to Twitter on Monday.
“Hey, South Carolina. If you want a senator who will fight for criminal justice reform, lower college costs and make health care affordable, you’ve got to vote for my friend Jaime Harrison,” Obama said.
He added, “This year, you can vote early, or you can vote on Election Day, November 3. Early voting is happening right now. Go to iwillvote.com to find your early vote location. Make your plan and vote for Jaime today.”

There are other Senate races that Republicans — who currently hold the majority in the Senate — are fighting for in this year’s election, including Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Democrats in the Senate are facing challenging contests in Alabama and Michigan.
