COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Senator Lindsey Graham's campaign says it's paid his filing fee to seek re-election.

At least three people have said they will challenge Graham in the Republican primary in June, including Buddy Witherspoon. The former Republican National Committee member's campaign says he'll file later this week.

First District Congressman Henry Brown of Hanahan and Republican primary opponent Paul Norris of Johns Island both paid their filing fee.

Second District Representa5tive Joe Wilson of Springdale also has filed to run again. Phil Black of Lexington has field to run against Wilson in the Republican primary and Democrat Blaine Lotz of Hilton Head Island also filed for Wilson's seat.

Fourth District Congressman Bob Inglis of Travelers Rest hadn't filed yesterday afternoon, but Republican challenger Charles Jeter of Spartanburg did. Jeter served in the Reagan administration's Environmental Protection Agency.

Republican Nancy Harrellson of Marion has filed to challenge Democrat House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn of Columbia in the 6th District.
