      “The two biggest changes regarding the Senate and judicial confirmations that have occurred in the last decade have come from Democrats.
      “Harry Reid changed the rules to allow a simple majority vote for Circuit Court nominees dealing out the minority.
      “Chuck Schumer and his friends in the liberal media conspired to destroy the life of Brett Kavanaugh and hold that Supreme Court seat open.
      “In light of these two events, I will support President @realDonaldTrump in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg.”

      “Graham’s promise not to support a nominee during an election year was made on October 3rd 2018, so the excuses he is referencing happened before that. In other words Graham knew about Harry Reid’s rule changes and the fact that Democrats and the press were unhappy about Brett Kavanaugh being a rapist before he made the promise not to support a nominee. He made the promise anyway, in full possession of knowledge that he claims he can now use to break his promise.” https://www.palmerreport.com/analysis/lindsey-graham-isnt-getting-away-with-any-of-this/32459/

    Lindsey Graham, in a dead heat with Senate challenger, pleads for help https://news.yahoo.com/lindsey-graham-jaime-harrison-senate-race-toss-up-south-carolina-133230781.html
    The nonpartisan Cook Political Report announced Wednesday morning that it had moved the South Carolina race’s rating from Lean Republican to Toss-Up. Graham has represented the Palmetto State in the Senate since 2003 and won his most recent race by nearly 20 points in 2014, but Harrison’s fundraising and the national political climate have imperiled his seat.
    Harrison, who is Black, is a South Carolina native who attended Yale and Georgetown Law before serving as chairman of the state’s Democratic Party.
    “It’s a jump ball at this point,” said one South Carolina Republican strategist. “Jaime is peaking at exactly the right time and he’s got a deluge of money. [Harrison] is blocking every pass there is from Republicans.” https://cookpolitical.com/analysis/senate/south-carolina-senate/south-carolina-senate-moves-toss

    “Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Democrats during a Judiciary Committee meeting on Thursday that he believes Democratic nominee Joe Biden has a “good chance” of winning the November election.” https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/521200-graham-to-democrats-yall-have-a-good-chance-of-winning-the-white-house

    Oracle CEO Larry Ellison donated $250,000 to a super PAC supporting Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) reelection campaign as his company closed in on a coveted position as TikTok’s US technology partner. https://www.theverge.com/2020/10/17/21520356/oracle-tiktok-larry-ellison-lindsey-graham-super-pac-donation-jaime-harrison?scrolla=5eb6d68b7fedc32c19ef33b4
    FEC documents show that Ellison made the $250,000 donation to the Security is Strength PAC on September 14th. The Security is Strength PAC has bought ads exclusively in support of Graham’s political ambitions, including his 2015 presidential campaign and his current reelection bid for the US Senate. https://docquery.fec.gov/cgi-bin/forms/C00573733/1451054/sa/ALL
    It’s an unusually large donation for Ellison, who also donated $5,200 to Graham’s Majority Fund in January. The timing of the larger donation is also remarkable, coming mere hours after Oracle officially announced that it had been chosen as TikTok’s technology partner for its US operations, beating out Microsoft in a high-profile bidding process to save the popular video app.

  4. Graham Cracker says:

    Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Friday went after Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), asking why anyone would vote for the Republican lawmaker just weeks before his hotly contested election. (10/24/20) https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1320335577766559744
    “Graham has betrayed President Trump at almost every turn,” Dobbs pressed. “He has betrayed the American people and his oath of office. He’s done absolutely nothing to investigate Obamagate except to tell everyone, ‘Stay tuned,’ time and time again. Stay tuned. Senator Graham needs to be tuned out in South Carolina.”
    Lindsey Graham Laments Out-of-State Donors Contributing to Dem Opponent’s Campaign: ‘Trying to Take Me Out’ (10/25/20) https://www.newsweek.com/lindsey-graham-laments-out-state-donors-contributing-dem-opponents-campaign-trying-take-me-1541959
    ‘I used to respect him’: Jaime Harrison lambasts ‘feckless’ Lindsey Graham in final pitch to South Carolina voters : Democratic challenger has pulled virtually even with senior Trump loyalist in recent polls (10/24/20) https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/south-carolina-senate-jaime-harrison-lindsey-graham-rally-florence-b1296376.html
    A Morning Consult poll released this week showed Harrison leading Graham by two points—47 percent to 45 percent—while a Data for Progress poll on October 14 showed Graham trailing behind by just one point. However, a Siena College/New York Times survey earlier this month had the Republican senator up by six percentage points. The Cook Political Report considers the South Carolina race a “toss-up.” [see links]
    Newsweek reached out to Graham’s re-election campaign for comment, but did not receive a response in time for publication. (10/24/20) https://www.newsweek.com/jaime-harrison-raises-2-million-48-hours-polls-show-him-leading-lindsey-graham-1541893
