Fox Business host Lou Dobbs isn’t a big fan of South Carolina GOP Senator Lindsey Graham.
On his show “Lou Dobbs Tonight”, Dobbs said, “well just to be clear I don’t know why anyone of 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,” Dobbs lamented. He said he was going to 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.”
Dobbs then quoted what President Trump said about Lindsey Graham in 2016:
“I think Lindsey Graham is a disgrace, and I think you have one of the worst representatives of any representative in the United States…I don’t think he could run for dog catcher and win again. I really don’t. Other than that, I think he’s wonderful…He’s one of the dumbest human beings I’ve ever seen…The guy is a nut job.”
Dobbs prefaced Trump’s quote by saying, “I believe the President’s words about the Senator then apply today.”
Dobbs also stated he believed Graham has betrayed Trump “at almost every turn” in addition to betraying the American people and his oath of office.
“He has done absolutely nothing to investigate Obamagate except to tell everyone to stay tuned time and time again. Stay tuned,” Dobbs continued.
“Senator Graham needs to be tuned out in South Carolina,” Dobbs concluded.

Dobbs’s comments are something Democrats could turn into a powerful ad heading into Graham’s contentious reelection.
Graham is locked into a tight race against former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Harrison. A recent poll from Morning Consult on October 22nd show Harrison leading Graham by 2 points. Most of the other recent polls show the race within a single point, but an outlier poll from Siena College and the New York Times show Graham leading by 6.
