    GOP senators have aggressively tried to keep their conservative base at bay to ensure there’s virtually no space on their right for a primary foe to emerge. That didn’t work so well. Republican primary challengers are lining up to take on sitting senators next year in eight of the 12 races involving sitting GOP senators, gunning for party leaders like Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, veterans like Thad Cochran in Mississippi and Pat Roberts in Kansas and deal-makers like Lindsey Graham in South Carolina. Texas Sen. John Cornyn became the latest target this week, when a fiercely conservative congressman, Steve Stockman,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Lindsey Graham threatened Monday to hold up all nominations for federal government positions until survivors of last year's deadly attack on the diplomatic post in Libya appear before Congress. "Where are the #Benghazi survivors?" the South Carolina Republican said on his official Twitter account. "I'm going to block every appointment in the US Senate until they are made available to Congress."

    GOP USA ^ | 11/13/2012 | Michael Salcedo
    Two senators on opposite sides of the aisle are proposing comprehensive changes to the immigration laws that would include a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants now in the United States. Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who promoted similar proposals on separate Sunday news shows said that no path to citizenship would be available until the country's borders were secure. Only then could those in the U.S. without authorization "come out of the shadows, get biometrically identified, start paying taxes, pay a fine for the law they broke,"...

    South Carolina’s Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is fast becoming the mainstream media’s new favorite Republican. With Senator John McCain (R-AZ) in an unexpectedly tough primary fight, McCain has had to tack hard to the right. This means, the “Maverick” will have to pretend for the next 4 months that he shares at least a few Republican values. It’s a tough job, but McCain should be up to the challenge. With conservative and former congressman J.D. Hayworth breathing down his neck, McCain’s reversal on immigration reform has been enough to cause whiplash. He went from the front man on amnesty to...

    WASHINGTON — To look at President-elect Barack Obama and Sen. Lindsey Graham sitting side by side Wednesday and to hear them passing out praise, you wouldn't know that scarcely 10 weeks ago they were at political war. Graham, a South Carolina Republican, is a close friend of Sen. John McCain and crisscrossed the country with him during his losing presidential bid. "I think this is a good way to get started," Graham said as he sat with Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden before a throng of journalists at the Obama transition headquarters in Washington. "The campaign is over. I'm...

    Sen. John McCain avoided reporters during the lame-duck session of Congress last week. But Tuesday, shortly after President-elect Obama had his own news conference about the economy, McCain broke his silence by speaking with reporters in Phoenix. This came after the two former contenders met last week, and Tuesday, McCain continued to make nice. When asked what advice he had for right-wing supporters who say the prospect of an Obama presidency terrifies them, he was categorical. "Respect this landmark election, respect the fact America faces great challenges, and Americans expect us to work together. That does not mean we won't...

    A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from the campaign of a young man named Bob Conley. He is running for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Lindsey Graham. I was very much impressed by his many conservative positions and his obvious dedication to our ailing Constitution, which has been under attack these last eight years. This fellow, I thought, must have the faith of a mustard seed to try to take on Lindsey Graham and his $3.5 million campaign war chest, contributed by Washington lobbyists and special interest groups. If he is willing to do this, he at least...

    Charleston City Paper ^ | October 30, 2008
    A Democratic voter passed on a mailer he got from Lindsey Graham yesterday and it looks like a piece of mail targeted at Democratic voters. “An independent voice. Reaching across party lines,” it reads (his bold, not mine). Inside, it says that Graham “isn’t afraid to speak his mind,” and that “he has the courage to stand firm, even when it’s not popular, and reach across party lines to solve tough problems.” That’s followed by the line, “A leader we can ALL trust.” (Again, his emphasis, not mine).

    COLUMBIA, S.C.—A group supporting U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's opponent in next week's election said Monday it would pay to broadcast ads showing the Republican senator referring to immigration critics as "bigots." The ad shows him telling a Latino group that supporters of a 2007 immigration law overhaul effort were "going to tell the bigots to shut up."

    You see them together everywhere these days: The streets of Iraq, the halls of Congress, the campaign trail. If Lindsey Graham isn't with John McCain, there's a good chance he's representing him on the TV talk shows, in the Wall Street bailout talks or at the vice presidential debate. But South Carolina's senior senator said that doesn't mean he'd follow McCain to the White House. "Those folks who like seeing my smiling face will be seeing me around here for a while," Graham said Friday in North Charleston. "I will stay in the Senate if re-elected and serve out my...

    GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Just back from Washington, D.C., South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham painted a very bleak picture of what he expects for the country if the bailout plan fails. Graham spoke in front of a foreclosed home on Avondale Drive in Greenville. He said if the plan doesn't pass soon, more banks will fold. Businesses will close and people will lose their jobs. As least twice he mentioned that the economy could be headed for a depression.

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement after the vote in the U.S. House of Representatives against the financial rescue plan. He said: “I have never been more disappointed in the Congress than I am today. I hope every member of the House of Representatives—Republican and Democrat—who voted against this legislation will work in the next twenty-four hours to improve the bill. Now is the time to put the national interest above the self interest. “Speaker Pelosi’s partisan comments before the vote obviously did not help matters. Now is not the time for extreme partisanship...

    WASHINGTON — If Andrew Jackson created the notion of a president’s “Kitchen Cabinet,” Sen. John McCain is reinventing it months before his possible election to the White House. And Sen. Lindsey Graham seems to be McCain’s one-man Kitchen Cabinet. Graham’s visibility as the Arizona senator’s closest political confidant has risen in recent weeks as the two men crisscross the country and travel abroad on McCain’s presidential quest.

    WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement on the agreement to bring the immigration reform bill back to the floor. The Senate will resume debate on immigration possibly as soon as next week. Graham said: “After 9-11 immigration reform is not just a social and economic problem, but also a national security issue of the highest importance. I am pleased that the Senate leadership is going to bring the immigration reform bill back to the floor for further debate and amendment. This is a great opportunity for the Senate, in a bipartisan fashion, to reform...

    20 minutes ago WASHINGTON - Presidential politics and partisan resentments reached a boil in the Senate Wednesday night, as a heated exchange between Sens. Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) and Lindsey Graham (news, bio, voting record) erupted on the chamber floor and continued in a nearby corridor. Senators had been debating a contentious immigration overhaul for hours when Obama — the Illinois Democrat running for president — introduced an amendment that would end a key provision after five years rather than 14. His target was a proposed point system that would make it easier for would-be immigrants to obtain...

General Thoughts: "Over the last few months, I have spoken with President Bush almost every week and met with him twice about immigration reform. Secretary Chertoff and Secretary Gutierrez have been there every step of the way. There would be no bill without their hard work. "Today we charted a new path for our nation's immigration policies. "We break the cycle of chain migration by placing a premium on the education and job skills of new immigrants coming to the United States. This...

Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., on the immigration legislation. "It's the best bill I think we can get to President Bush," Graham said as some in the crowd shouted "No!"
