Lindsey Graham Signals He Won’t Support McConnell’s Bid for Senate Leader

Mitch McConnell is launching another bid to be the top Republican in the Senate but he may be facing an uphill battle with some Republican colleagues. During an interview with “Hannity” South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham suggested he doesn’t intend to support McConnell for Republican Senate Leader because of his negative relationship with former President Trump.

Newsmax reports:

“Elections are about the future,” Graham said. “If you want to be a Republican leader in the House or the Senate, you have to have a working relationship with President Donald Trump.

“He’s the most consequential Republican since Ronald Reagan. It’s his nomination if he wants it, and I think he’ll get reelected in 2024.”

But years before the next presidential election, there will be a decision on who leads the Senate GOP, and Graham suggested he could not vote for McConnell, who has broken with Trump after Jan. 6.

“I’m not going to vote for anybody for leader of the Senate as a Republican unless they can prove to me that they can advocate an ‘American First’ agenda and have a working relationship with President Trump, because if you can’t do that, you will fail,” Graham concluded.

So far, former President Trump has stooped short of making any official announcement about his plans for 2024 but has strongly hinted at launching another presidential campaign.

McConnell & Graham never were on board with Trump. They worked with him when is was in their interest. Both of them are establishment republicans. They work better withe democrats than they did with Trump even today.

DJT is a fearless warrior who will stand up to anyone or anything, he is not beholden to any foreign country or person, does not need the job aka he wanted the job to help America, the American people and to defend/protect the Constitution. He had the most successful presidency in history, four or eight years, and I will be honored to vote for him again if he runs! He is probably the only person, with the intestinal fortitude and intelligence, to turn this country around and repair the damage done by Biden.

This is the United Staes of America,not the biden wantaby dicatatorship, joe biden man without a country, his America last policy is blowing up in his face this is what happens when the father and son team travel the world at the tax payors expense with their hands out, looking for monetary gain, at the cost of loyalty to America. Now that more and more has become public information joe biden is attempting to change and alter our constitution to hide behind smoke screens to ease their personal gain against the rules and laws. Return their pot of gold received from China and Russia taken form them for promises to do what? Recent court ruling shows a check on bidens power grabs, his total avoidance of any due process, for his implementation of executive directives without any regard for the legislative branch or any State considerations, let alone the American public at large. This trend will continue until his lust for political power and the return of American values without the dictatorship he is trying to put into effect.

It is the establishment republicans, that is the problem. They talk a good talk but follow through on nothing. Only a couple have the guts to buck the system. When they do buck the system the progressives and media beats them up. Trump is the only one that took the establishment on single hand in my life time. Reagan was a close 2nd.

I hope Graham backs up his tuff talk with McConnel.. We don’t need another Rhino Congress when we get control. Last time we had control. We got nothing done . The asshole from Wisconsin that became Speaker of the House totally screwed us. Glad his sorry ass quit. Need that asshole Romney to quit as well. Make Tom Cotton the Senate Majority leader And Jim Jordan Speaker. And investigate every Liberal for everything and bring charges

“President Trump has stooped short of making any official announcement” Where’s the editor of this article? Trump stoops to no one. Don’t claim it was a typo, either, you Demo-rat Sally Kent.

Ah, so now the editors are redacting the comments here. Nice try. “President Trump has stooped short of making any official announcement ” TRUMP STOOPS TO NO ONE. If that was an editorial typo, change the article. If you meant it, Sally Kent, stand up and admit it.

Actions speak louder than words. Graham talks the talk but he normally lacks action.
