Senator Lindsey Graham had issued a statement indicating he will side with Mitch McConnell, President Trump and Republicans in voting on a replacement for Justice Ginsburg before the election.
Graham explained in a series of tweets
The two biggest changes regarding the Senate and judicial confirmations that have occurred in the last decade have come from Democrats. #1″
* Harry Reid changed the rules to allow a simple majority vote for Circuit Court nominees dealing out the minority.
* Chuck Schumer and his friends in the liberal media conspired to destroy the life of Brett Kavanaugh and hold that Supreme Court seat open.
In light of these two events, I will support President @realDonaldTrump in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg. #3″
Jaime Harrison, Graham’s Democrat Senate opponent tweeted “My grandpa always said that a man is only as good as his word. Senator Graham, you have proven your word is worthless.”
