(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – These days, many political pundits and advisors report that it’s hard to know what to make of U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican who represents the deep red state of South Carolina. More than a few of those same pundits and advisors say – usually off the record – that they believe Graham may be in the post precarious political position that he’s ever been in since he first ran for elected office all the way back in 1992 when Graham was first elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives. There are even whispers among political insiders in South Carolina that Graham could be ripe for defeat by a more conservative primary challenger if he runs again in 2026.
After all, Graham and his voters seem to have a love/hate relationship. Most Americans are aware that when former President Donald J. Trump first announced he was running in the 2016 Presidential Election, Graham, who was also running, repeatedly attacked Trump with vicious diatribes on mainstream media television shows. Who doesn’t recall Graham calling Trump a “race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot” all the way back in December of 2015?

Of course, once Trump was elected President, Graham, like so many other GOP officeholders who’d slimed Trump, became a political suck-up to Trump and couldn’t do enough to sing Trump’s praises for fear of Trump working to have Graham pushed out office by South Carolina voters. Fortunately, for Graham’s political career, Trump forgave Graham for all the verbal attacks – there were dozens – back in 2015 and 2016.
Still, it appears that Graham is once again in trouble with Republicans in South Carolina. As you can watch in the video above, he was booed heartily by a GOP audience when he suggested that they should get the C0VID-19 vaccine. As you can see in the video, Graham immediately backpedaled. Something he seems to have perfected as a means of saving his career more than once.
