Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told voters who support deporting children covered under the DREAM Act that he didn't want their vote.
"I'm excited about giving you a chance to live the rest of your life" in America, Graham said of DREAMers.
"I embrace you, and I want you to succeed," he said, speaking at a press conference with Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.).

Given that many voters are very angry with him and the Party of Government that he represents, people not voting for him should be the very least of his concerns now.
Lindsay, I will do one better.
I will be sure to support your opponent at every opportunity.
What the heck is wrong with people in South Carolina?
You should have had the balls to say this before the last term you were elected for not after!
1) Open primaries - many Ds voted for him in the primary 2) Too many ran against him and no one to really rally around. He only got 56% in the last primary, so there is a good chance he goes get primaried, especially with comments like that. I moved here after he got elected last time so looking forward to voting against him the primary in 2020.
I don’t think that will be problem, graham cracker.
Its a deal Linda. Got that black dress yet for McCain’s upcoming funeral?
Does he feel the same about bank robbers? If they are used to having the stolen money, is it mean to take it back from their children once they are caught?
Just shut up, Linda, ...
Dear senator Graham— have no fear! We certainly WON,T vote for you!! Not in a million years
I’m “Dreaming” of the day both you and McCain are gone. RINO’s like you are the problem with the Republican Party.
Let’s us all appeal to da NEW AMERICANS!
...................and ONLY them.
THE "NEW AMERICAN"
|We are now one of the largest Spanish-speaking nations in the world. We're a major source of Latin music, journalism and culture.
Just go to Miami, or San Antonio, Los Angeles, Chicago or West New York, New Jersey ... and close your eyes and listen. You could just as easily be in Santo Domingo or Santiago, or San Miguel de Allende.
For years our nation has debated this change -- some have praised it and others have resented it. By nominating me, my party has made a choice to welcome the new America.
Our future cannot be separated from the future of Latin America.
As I speak, we are celebrating the success of democracy in Mexico.
George Bush from a campaign speech in Miami, August 2000.
Here is an excerpt of a good critique of that speech:
In equating our intimate historic bonds to our mother country and to Canada with our ties to Mexico, W. shows a staggering ignorance of the civilizational facts of life. The reason we are so close to Britain and Canada is that we share with them a common historical culture, language, literature, and legal system, as well as similar standards of behavior, expectations of public officials, and so on. My Bush Epiphany By Lawrence Auster
Hopefully, next Primary the Trump team will get in there and it will be clear who to rally behind and get the job done.
He is merely a mouthpiece for Sheldon Adelson, put the visegrips to Adelson’s softies and this little pip squeak will sing a different tune.
But yet he keeps wining the general election.
I highly doubt these Democrats are voting for him in November. That’s all on the SC GOP voters.
Of all the Republican Senators up for re-election in the 2014 cycle, Graham was considered one of the most vulnerable to a primary challenge, largely due to his low approval ratings and reputation for working with and compromising with Democrats. He expected a primary challenge from conservative activists, including the Tea Party movement, and Chris Chocola, President of the Club for Growth, indicated that his organization would support a primary challenge if an acceptable standard-bearer emerged.
However, a serious challenger to Graham failed to emerge and he was widely viewed as likely to win, which has been ascribed to his "deft maneuvering" and "aggressive" response to the challenge. He befriended potential opponents from the state's congressional delegation and helped them with fundraising and securing their preferred committee assignments; he assembled a "daunting multimillion-dollar political operation" dubbed the "Graham machine" that built six regional offices across the state and enlisted the support of thousands of paid staffers and volunteers, including over 5,000 precinct captains; he assembled a "staggering" campaign warchest and "blanketed" the state with positive ads; he focused on constituent services and local issues; and he refused to "pander" to the Tea Party supporters, instead confronting them head-on, arguing that the Republican party needs to be more inclusive
SO there was no one to challenge him plus bought people's support to make sure he won. Now he's in until 2020
Is this POS up for re-election next year?
If so, he should be shown the door.
