CHARLESTON (AP) -- Charleston County Republicans have again voted to censure U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for being too liberal.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported the county GOP executive committee voted 39 to 32 to complain about Graham's positions on a number of issues.

Those included Graham's support for President Obama's Supreme Court nominees and cooperating with Democrats.

Charleston County Republicans' executive committee voted unanimously four years ago to censure Graham for not being Republican enough.

Republican National Committeewoman Cindy Costa called the vote “foolish.”

Tom Sheridan of James Island said he wanted his politicians to be more conservative.

Graham issued a statement saying he's working to take his conservative message to the 20,000 Republicans in Charleston County expected to vote in the June 10 primary. Graham faces six opponents.
