CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Thomas Ravenel said his personal problems were a factor in his loss for a US Senate seat which Lindsey Graham won on Tuesday.
The former state treasurer and reality TV star said he also lost in part because he started his campaign late.
"I think one advantage to running a successful race is starting early, starting in advance," Ravenel said."Had we had another 90 days we would have had a really good shot at winning this thing.
Ravenel believes if he had time to get his message out, he would have won the race. Graham was re-elected to a third term in South Carolina.
"Starting late is very difficult, that together with some of my personal problems, quite frankly, affected my ability to get the message out," Ravenel said."Had I not had those issues, I think that we would've done a lot better."
