Sen. Lindsey Graham believes the bitter confirmation process of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh will energize Republicans in November — and vows to go on the campaign trail to do just that.
In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” the South Carolina Republican — who passionately denounced the 11th-hour allegations of sexual misconduct that surfaced against Kavanaugh — predicted, “This is going to the streets at the ballot box.”
“I’ve never campaigned against a colleague in my life,” he said. “That’s about to change. I'm going to go throughout this country to let people in these purple states, red states where [President Donald] Trump won, know what I thought? Know what I think about this process?”
Graham said he was “happy as a clam” that “mob rule lost” — and isn’t worried about his re-election in South Carolina in 2020.
“I’ve never been more pissed in my life, this is character assassination, this is wanting power too much,” he said of Senate Democrats’ rollout of the accusations. “To the extent that I came to the aid of this good man and help defeat this debacle, I am happy as a clam.”
“I am bipartisan when it makes sense,” he added. “I try to have a good disposition because I like my job, but don't mistake that I don't care about the conservatives, so if I made you upset because I would not legitimize McCarthyism, then good, and I think I can survive in South Carolina.”
