Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs held nothing back on his show recently. The right winger called out Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on his program.
And made it known he is opposed to Graham serving any more time in the Senate.
Sen. Graham faces a tough challenge from Democrat Jaime Harrison for his coveted seat. Harrison has been dominating Graham in fundraising efforts during the race. As the incumbent looks to be in real danger of losing.
Dobbs tore into Graham as he announced, “Just to be clear, I don’t know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham. “It’s just outrageous. This is the guy who keeps saying, ‘Stay tuned.’ He said he was gonna get to the bottom of Obamagate with the Judiciary Committee, which has been a year-and-a-half – actually, longer – of absolute inert, inert response to these pressing issues of our day.”

The South Carolina Senator taking some heat from his fellow Republicans. He often appears on Fox News to puff up his chest about one investigation or another.
While Graham sits in a powerful position as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Those comments referring to his panel’s probe of alleged FBI counter surveillance vs. then GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. Former FBI Director James Comey testified late in September before the committee. So far little has come from the committee’s inquiry.
Now it seems that Dobbs heard enough. This after Sen. Graham said he will not subpoena Twitter & Facebook’s CEOs until after the election. As Republicans charge big tech suppressed New York Post reports on Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and son Hunter. Which investigate the Biden family’s business dealings overseas.
Clearly it’s not a good sign when other party members air such grievances to the public.
Do you think Graham is going to go down?
A lot of people certainly seem to think so. And with his Senate race so close, they may get their wish.
As we stated above, Graham is in serious jeopardy of losing his seat to Jaime Harrison.
Harrison, 44, was a long, long shot when he announced his bid to unseat Lindsey Graham in South Carolina.
Harrison has knocked on doors and held campaign events in which he has convinced many voters that it is time to “turn the page” on the three-term Senate Judiciary Committee chairman.
He has taken a simple and honest approach to unseat Graham. Which is show, don’t tell.
Harrison believes that Graham has become nothing more than Trump’s most shameless sycophant in Congress. He also believes that his actions in supporting Trump have distanced him from his constituents.
Despite the pandemic, Harrison has found ways to get into communities and demonstrate what they have been missing under Graham. He says it is time for South Carolina to have a representative that gives the state’s communities hands-on attention.
Back in August, Harrison raised $10 million, many of the donations came from out of state, building on the $14 million he raised in the second quarter.
“Lindsey Graham is a man who’s been in Washington for 25 years, a man who’s the golf buddy of the president of the United States,” Harrison said. “A round-headed boy from Orangeburg, South Carolina, born to a teen mom, is out-raising that guy.”
Recent polling shows Harrison either tied with Graham or just a percentage point behind. If Harrison defeats Graham in November, South Carolina will become the first state with two African American senators. If Harrison loses his campaign it will still be a sign that attitudes in the South are changing.
