State Sen. Lee Bright has launched his website teasing ahead to a U.S. Senate campaign run against Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Bright announced on social media Tuesday, "It's almost time. Will you join us?" linking to his new website, brightforsenate.com.

While the website is still in the works, it asks visitors to sign up for his newsletter to get his campaign announcement video as soon as he makes it official.

The Roebuck lawmaker said he is waiting to see how the field shapes up before making his formal announcement. Bright was elected to the Senate in 2008.

Two other candidates are already in the race. Anderson businessman Richard Cash and Charleston businesswoman Nancy Mace agree with Bright that Graham is not conservative enough for South Carolina.

Graham was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2002 after Strom Thurmond stepped aside.
