NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was joined by SC01 candidate Nancy Mace for a #FillTheSeat/GOTV rally Friday in the parking lot of the North Charleston Coliseum.

Sen. Graham spoke about the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court, and thanked Democrats on the judiciary committee for how Barrett’s hearing was handled, saying they handled the hearing better compared to the Cavanaugh hearing.

He called the controversy of Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein giving him a hug a shame for the country.

I asked the senator for more specifics regarding what he believes is at stake in the November election.

“I’m confident that the radical left will impose its will and will expand the Supreme Court beyond nine. That will be the end of the court as an independent body,” he said.

He went on to say, “I’m confident they’re going to change the rules where anything coming out of the House can’t be stopped by the minority. I’m confident that they will redo the Electoral College so that California and New York will pick the President of the United States.”

Sen. Graham was also asked about a recent ethics complaint that he used the Capitol building for fundraising purposes. He said he does not think he did anything wrong.

He said he was simply asked a question out in the hall and answered it.
