Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has blown up efforts to challenge the electoral college vote as “the most offensive concept in the world” and urged Vice President Mike Pence to certify President-elect Joe Biden as the next president.
Speaking insistently from the Senate Wednesday night, Graham said he and President Donald Trump had “one hell of a long journey behind them. I hate to end like this. Oh my god, I hate it.” And while briefly applauding Trump as “next president,” he dismissed the president’s trick of questioning the election results in Congress as “doing no good.”
“For the Conservatives who believe in the Constitution, now is your chance to stand up and be counted,” said Graham. “So Mike, Mr. Vice President, just hold on. You said we can count on Mike. We can all count on the Vice President. You will do the right thing. You will do the constitutional.” . “
