Wes Hickman, a spokesman for Mr. Graham, said in a statement that "Senator Graham is ready and willing to play a key role in immigration reform. He intends to work with many of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle."

Has Graham gotten his “end of life” consultation yet?
Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.), who led those earlier drives along with Sen. Edward Kennedy (D., Mass.), isn't expected to play a prominent role this year. He faces a primary challenge next year in the state he has represented for more than two decades. One of his opponents is a founder of a controversial group that conducts civilian patrols along the border in search of illegal immigrants.
F U MCCAIN! SIMCOX 2010! PURGE MCCAIN!
What do they have on this guy that he will betray his nation?
He must have himself a Latino pool boy or sumthin.
Who is there to run against Lindsey Graham in a primary?
As soon as I find out, that is who I will support with donations, even though I can’t vote of him or her. We must send Graham packing! We are blessed here in Florida to be rid of Martinez!
When will these America-hater. Illegala Alien Amnesty fascists ever learn?
Looks like there will be a push to give illegals amnesty later this year
Based on that cheesy grin, I think he’s getting his prostate exam.
“Mel! She was great! Wish I’d used protection though!”
Grahamnesty will be in the Senate until 2014. He was re-elected by South Carolina voters in November 2008.
The irony is that the Democrat--an upstart named Bob Conley who received no support from the Party and ran on meager contributions and his own funds--was far more conservative than Lindsey Graham. Conley was so conservative that his defeated Rat challenger said of him: "We've nominated a Republican in a Democratic primary." [source]
Conley had only one flaw: he was a Ron Paul "Democrat."
The problem with Republicans is that many of them talk about a Big Tent, claim that those who agree with them 80 percent of the time are okay, and extol the virtue of limited government...but when push comes to shove, they will vote for anything that has "R" after its name, even if it's more statist than any other alternative.
Now, we can turn to Graham's recent treachery: one, letting Sotomayor out into the Senate for what was essentially a guaranteed confirmation; two, his recent interview with The Washington Post expressing a willingness to give in to Obama; and three, this new tasty morsel of information from The Wall Street Journal concerning his own people openly politically fellating Obama on the issue of amnesty for illegal aliens. Seriously, folks, this is what you get when you elect RINOs...and this is exactly why McCain must be purged in 2010.
Treasonous bast... er I mean little lord lindsey gramnesty needs to be put out to pasture.
Surely there exists one half way decent republican challenger who can end that pretentious punks reign of error...
Now we have to worry about Suntan Charlie getting the Senate seat illegally.
How despicable is Lindsey Graham?
Let me count the ways.
Too many to count.
That's a real problem. He was re-elected in 2008 for six more wonderful years. Think 2014.
And if conservatives don’t get up and roar, McCain will be re-elected in 2010 for six more years of hell. Think 2016.
And I don’t think that old coot is going to kick the bucket any time soon, either.
I'm still hoping for J. D. Hayworth. I think Simcox has little chance against Juan.
WHY ?? This is something NO American Wants!! Now after Leslie and Please Burn in Hell Mell have tried this before and failed then BOTH worms voted for Skank o Sotodummy, The question now becomes, Just how are these dirty Communists still considered Republicans and why do they hate American citizens??
I posted a pro-Conley thread on the Liberty Caucus room, but it was removed.
Lindsy..just be honest..dump the R take on the D and go join your fellow traitor Sen Spectical..er Spector....
There fixed that for you.
I’m tellin’ you with the mistakes Republicans in SC are making, that state is likely to go Dem in the next election: Mark Sanford’s inability to keep is life together, Bob Inglis going against his constiuents and insulting church goers, and Grahamnesty.... they are all going in the dumpster.
My son and his family lives there and it’s no wonder you can’t get normal folk in SC to be excited about any candidate. The view them as all the same — crooks and liars.
His live-in boyfriend in South Carolina does that frequently.
Thanks for telling me! :)
Too bad his seat isn’t coming up sooner!
Unfortunately, there are many fewer patriots in Congress today.

Word. McCain can try to minimize the damage by pretending to be a conservative now, but the problem for him is that we KNOW him and his tricks.
Some freepers supported Conley. He was obviously better than Graham on some things, notably immigration.
But I feel that it at best would have been a push, likely worse to have him in the Senate. It was hilarious to see that happen to the SC rats though.
I don’t trust anyone who would use the rat party as a vehicle. He would have been a wildcard in terms of voting record. Pat Buchanite turned slightly unlikely Ron Paul supporter turned Democrat? I checked to see what the dUmmies though of him. They all wanted him to beat Graham cracker. Graham votes the right way most of the time despite his flaws. I’d have to hear him say he was against rat party organization of the senate before I’d have thought of supporting him. He might be so against the GOP now that you can’t be so sure he wouldn’t back rat organization.
It’s a pity Graham’s primary opponent did not have a well funded campaign, thus avoiding this issue.
Did you guys hear Mel Martinez’s comments on Sotomayor?
“We do not have to sit around and try to divine whether someday she will answer the siren call to judicial activism, as I have heard someone say on the floor of the Senate,” Martinez said. “You do not have to wonder. You can wonder, and it might give you an excuse to vote against someone who is otherwise qualified, but the fact is, with a 17-year record, you should have a pretty good idea whether that siren call would have been answered by now. To my estimation, it has not been.”
