(ReclaimingAmerica.net) Proving that you never know what position he’ll take, and just as almost all Republicans are criticizing President Joe Biden for announcing that his nominee for the United States Supreme Court seat being vacated by Justice Stephen Breyer will be a Black woman, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on national television yesterday and said that he supports Biden’s decision – especially if it’s a Black woman from South Carolina.
Specifically, Graham would like to see Biden select U.S. District Judge Michelle Childs.
According to the Daily Caller:
“Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham appeared on “Face the Nation” Sunday, hinting at his support for President Joe Biden’s possible pick for the Supreme Court, U.S. District Judge Michelle Childs.
“‘I can’t think of a better person for President Biden to consider for the Supreme Court than Michelle Childs. She is considered to be a fair-minded, highly-gifted jurist. She is one of the most decent people I have ever met,’ Graham stated.
“Democratic South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the ‘architect for Biden’s Supreme Court pledge,’ has also thrown his support behind Childs, telling Margaret Brennan that he had spoken to Biden about her possible nomination ‘months ago.'” [emphasis added]
It’s not often that you’ll find a Republican Senator aligned with both Biden and Clyburn. Still, in this case, it seems that Graham is on-board with Biden’s decision to limit his review of potential Supreme Court nominees to Black women as long as it’s a Black woman from his state of South Carolina.
