WATCH: Graham says Senator Burr’s vote to convict Trump “just made Lara Trump almost a certain nominee for the Senate seat”

Appearing on Fox News, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said that Republican Senator Richard Burr’s vote to convict Donald Trump may have made Lara Trump “almost certain” to be nominated for the US Senate.

“The biggest winner I think of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump,” Graham said “My dear friend Richard Burr, who I like and I’ve been friends to a long time, just made Lara Trump almost a certain nominee for the Senate seat in North Carolina to replace him if she runs.”

“Now certainly I would be behind her because she represents the future of the Republican party,” he added.
