Good ol’ Lindsey did not see it coming – and he has ‘The Donald’ to thank.
Senator Lindsey Graham has been in the spotlight since the Kavanaugh hearings, and now there’a talk of a major power shift.
The South Carolina Senator played a pivotal role in getting Justice Kavanaugh confirmed in his role on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Graham’s fiery outburst against the Democrats went viral and fired up Republicans, making him an unlikely conservative superstar.
Across the country, Republicans rallied to protect an innocent man, and it set a fire under Republicans all the way to election day, when they held the Senate.
During the midterms, he campaigned all over America to help Republicans expand their Senate majority, and now he’s getting a big promotion.
From The Washington Times:
Sen. Charles E. Grassley announced Friday he’ll become chairman of the Finance Committee next year, creating a domino effect that leaves Sen. Lindsey Graham as the likely chairman of the Judiciary Committee.
Mr. Grassley, who’s also in line to become Senate president pro tempore, had the option to stay at the helm of the Judiciary Committee, but opted to return to the Finance Committee, where he’s also a senior member.
Now, that role will likely fall to Mr. Graham, who has already signaled some of the changes he’ll make, including a stern approach to Democrats’ efforts to block nominees.
SHARE if you think Lindsey Graham is the man to get Trump’s judicial nominees through!
Senator Grassley’s move to the Finance Committee is all thanks to Trump’s great economy. Now Graham will likely carry Grassley’s torch. He will be instrumental in getting conservative judges appointed.
Graham appears eager for chance to prove himself, stating in a press release what he plans to do if selected.
“If I am fortunate enough to be selected by my colleagues to serve as Chairman, I will push for the appointment and Senate confirmation of highly qualified conservative judges to the federal bench and aggressive oversight of the Department of Justice and FBI,” Graham stated.
It’s wartime for the Democrats, who are determined to fight all of Trump’s appointments tooth and nail. Republicans will have a battle-tested warrior with no-nonsense Graham leading the charge.
Chuck Grassley did a great job as Judiciary Chair. Let’s hope Graham can do even better.
SHARE if you think Lindsey Graham is the perfect man for the job!
