Sen. Graham to Trump: Renominate Kavanaugh If He Falls Short

By    |   Tuesday, 02 October 2018 02:00 PM

There is a proverbial "Trump" card to play at the ballot box if the Senate nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh falls short, therefore "legitimizing a horrible process and the destruction of good person," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News' "Hannity."

"I would appeal the verdict of the Senate to the ballot box," Sen. Graham told host Sean Hannity on Monday night. "This good man should not be destroyed.

". . . So what would I do? I would renominate him, and I would take this case to the American people and ask voters in Indiana, in Missouri, in North Dakota, and other places where [President Donald] Trump won, saying who he would nominate if he got to be president and see if voters want to appeal the verdict of their senator."

Graham famously ripped Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats for their 11th-hour obstructionist politics at last Thursday's hearing, and his rebuke of Kavanaugh obstruction continued Monday night to Hannity.

"If you legitimize this process by one vote short, we'll be on to the next person," Graham said. "I'd hate to be the next person nominated. I would feel horrible that we destroyed Kavanaugh."
