Lindsey Graham Pulls Out Piece of Paper, Issues Incredible Challenge to Chuck Schumer

Lindsey Graham is on a roll. For years, he was seen by many Republicans as sort of “conservative lite,” a fairly moderate politician who wasn’t particularly passionate or exciting.

All that seems to have changed with the Brett Kavanaugh kerfuffle. The South Carolina senator appears to have taken a few classes in cool, and his heartfelt defense of the embattled Supreme Court nominee caught the attention of conservatives everywhere.

On Sunday, Graham kept that energy going. During an appearance on Chris Wallace’s much-watched program, the senator issued a direct challenge to his Democrat counterpart in the Senate.

  1. Senator Graham is STILL a moderate Conservative. he is still trying to govern as a centrist. that is not a bad thing. what the senator is reacting to is the democrat shift into the realm of extremist left socialism. on observation, his attitude is as it has always been. what has changed is his awareness of just how far left the mainstream leaders and rank and file of the democrats have shifted and the blatant efforts of those democrats to ignore their constitutionally required duties and responsibilities and public law. His responses are the result of his maintaining his conservative values and centrist position when facing the abject and unrelenting refusal of the democrats to work within the limits of the Constitution of the United States of America and established public law. Voters in South Carolina have every reason to be proud of their choice for the US Senate.
