As the battle between the grassroots and the establishment sides of the Republican Party rages on, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is taking a very public stance on the side of the establishment.
Im going to embrace being a Chamber of Commerce Republican, Graham said in an interview with The Greenville News in Greenville, SC this week.
The Chamber of Commerce represents the biggest group fighting on behalf of the GOP establishment in its ongoing battle with the Tea Party movement, becoming deeply involved in Republican primary elections and pushing comprehensive immigration reform on Capitol Hill.
Theres a fight in our party about the sort of isolationism on foreign policy, libertarianism on domestic policy, Graham said. Im a traditional conservative Chamber of Commerce Republican."
"I like the Chamber of Commerce. I like the idea that people compete against each other," he explained. "During the day, you come together for the common good. Youll have insurance companies that compete against each other, youll have lawyers and bankers who basically fight for market share at the end of the day. But through the Chamber they try to come together and build up the community."
"Thats the way I think," Graham claimed. "When it comes to problem solving, Washington is broken and I think the solution is not more people yelling but somebody willing to roll up their sleeves and willing to fix problems like you have to do at the Chamber level and you have to do in the private sector.

Linda is broken.
FU Chamber of Crony Capitalist Republicrat Elitists.
Perfect ad material
I guess she wants to be their Chamber maid.
When I ran for state rep in CT in ‘96, I rejected them then. The CBIA/CoC SUPPORTED Weicker’s state income tax.
They have only gotten worse since then.
FULG!! And the McDaddy you rode in on.
Graham should be asking "how many voters does the Chamber of Commerce have?"
Probably also embraces being a gun grabber Republican.
And a La Raza Republican and a Log Cabin Republican (oops, did I type that?).
You’re right the Chamber has become a den of cronies ..all of them are big companies in bed with government .there’s no competition there.
I thought he embraced McCain. This amounts to adultery.
you go with that girl!
Doubling down on stupidity.
No Chamber of Commerce Amnesty for illegals.
“La Raza Republican” - BINGO!!!
Ya gotta figure that he’s getting a huge majority of his campaign funds with CoC connected donors.
What else is he going to say?
At least now the primary voters are voting on honest information.
I hope this p*****r just sunk himself.
The last time the Federal fixed anything was Hitler’s clock.
