Lindsey Graham: Susan Collins ‘Saved the Senate’ From ‘Sliding Into the Abyss’

On Friday night, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) praised his colleague Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) for giving her speech in support of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Sean Hannity began by praising Collins, declaring her speech “the most powerful speech” he has ever seen on the Senate floor. Graham called it “historic.”

“She adopted the rule of law, rejected the rule of the mob,” Graham said. “And If I had to tell somebody a good reason to vote for Kudge Kavanaugh, I would ask them to look at Susan’s speech. It was incredible in detail. Forcefully delivered. She didn’t look like she was pained. She hated what happened to the process but she was confident that Judge Kavanaugh was the right guy at the right time. So I think she saved the Senate and the Judiciary from sliding into the abyss.”

Ahead of the November midterms, Graham laid out what he called the “two choices” voters have: “the Susan Collins way or the protester way.”

“Who do you want to run the government? Conservatives aligned with Senator Collins, trying to work toward empowering people, making us safe, more money in your pocket or do you want to turn your government over to people who just yell and spit on you?” Graham asked.

He continued on: “To me, this is a really important time in American history. It’s now all about Kavanaugh. Before it was about a lot of things. Now it’s pretty simple. If you vote for the Democratic Party, you’re turning your government over to people who follow you around, spit on you, and try to intimidate you. If you keep the Republican Party in place, that means there will be an alliance between Susan Collins and others to keep us safe and make our lives better. That’s a pretty simple choice.”
