Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) still isn’t over how some Democrats treated Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing, and he wants American voters to keep it in mind when they cast their midterm ballots on November 6.
Sen. Graham was the strongest voice defending Kavanaugh during the hearing, dropping many one-liners in the process.
Now, the senator believes that the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the mob-like reaction from some on the left will be the driving force for voters in the 2018 midterm elections.
He explained his reasoning during an interview on “Fox & Friends.”
“This election now is down to simple things. Are you for what they did to [Justice] Kavanaugh? Are you for having your government run by a mob or are you for a sort of rule of law person’s presumed innocent? What kind of country do you want and who do you want to run it? Do you want these people who spit on me and yell at me being in charge or do you want a more orderly process? Judge Kavanaugh represents the best in our legal community. He was treated like garbage, despicable, and I hope they pay a price.”
Graham explained that the hostility from some on the left has become a regular event, referencing the suspicious letter mailed to the home of Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine).
“Every nine people are pretty nice. The tenth one wants to pick a fight. I’ve never seen it like this. I did impeachment and I’ve never seen it like this. They’re going nuts on the other side. The only thing they have left is to yell at you and intimidate you. That’s what this election’s about. If you want people running the country who will give in to that, then vote Democrat.”
The senator drove home the fact that he still believes that Kavanaugh was the best person to be nominated to the Supreme Court.
“[President Donald Trump] picked the best person on the list, Brett Kavanaugh, and they tried to destroy his life, and I hope it blows up in their face,” said Sen. Graham.
Americans will find out if Graham is right about the Kavanaugh backlash when polls close for the midterm elections on November 6.
