Midterms Cause Rift Between Graham And McConnell
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have found themselves in a strange standoff over who will control the Senate following the midterm elections.
According to The Hill, Senator Graham believes that the Republican Party will clinch the Senate after all of the votes are finalized and McConnell doesn’t believe that will be the case.
On Wednesday, Graham told reporters a “tidal wave is coming” and that Republicans Adam Laxalt and Herschel Walker will defeat their Democratic challengers.
However McConnell feels otherwise. When asked about how he felt the midterms were going to play out Senator McConnell said “I don’t deal in feelings. The question is, they’ve got to count the votes and then we’ll figure out where we are.”
Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker will now face off once again in a runoff election on Dec. 6th.
“Warnock doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell if we’ll get behind Herschel Walker,” Graham explained.
“If you’re an incumbent and you come up short the first time, you’re not gonna win the second time if the opponent has a chance to get their message out,” Graham added.
