Jaime Harrison, the South Carolina Democrat who is running against Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), appeared on CNN on Friday where he slammed the Republican senator.
When CNN’s Kate Bolduan asked about Graham and his relationship with Donald Trump, Harrison mocked the South Carolina senator and called out his hypocrisies.
“I hear it all the time from Democrats, Republicans, and independents in the state: ‘What happened to Lindsey Graham?’” he said. “What happened is, he saw his political fortunes will be tied to the president. He’s going to do and say anything that he can in order to stay relevant, to stay important, to get re-elected. That’s sad!”
Harrison added that Graham’s shameless opportunism will not be seen favorably by voters in his state.
“He epitomizes what people hate in politics,” he said. “They want someone with moral conviction, someone with a spine who will stand up and do the right thing, even when the politics doesn’t say it’s the best thing to do! That’s what I’m going to bring to the people of South Carolina — someone who has character and integrity.”
