HUTTO: GRAHAM “COULDN’T GET ELECTED PRESIDENT OF HIS OWN FAN CLUB”
“It is questionable whether Lindsey Graham could get elected President of his own fan club,” S.C. Sen. Brad Hutto said.
Hutto – along with independent Thomas Ravenel and Libertarian Victor Kocher – is running against the liberal “Republican’ for the U.S. Senate seat he has held since 2003. Prior to that, Graham spent eight years as a member of the U.S. House.
“Lindsey Graham continues to make South Carolina a joke on late night TV,” Hutto added. “For a 20-year incumbent who is repeatedly polling no better than 46 percent, this is further evidence that his focus is not on South Carolina and he is out of touch with both the people who elected him and political reality.”
Ordinarily we’d say South Carolinians would get a chance to decide for themselves, but Graham – who is known to hand-pick his local crowds – decided last week he didn’t have time to debate his opponents.
Funny … he’s got plenty of time for the Washington talk shows.
Also of interest? In declaring his presidential ambitions, Graham pointed out that unlike his fellow “neoconservative” (a.k.a. warmonger) Marco Rubio, he was no longer “afraid of the right.”
“I’ve let that go,” Graham told Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard.
