U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has found himself under attack from some within his own party. On Monday the Charleston County Republican Committee passed a resolution, by a close vote of 39-32, to censure Graham. There was immediate reaction:
The vote was immediately criticized by Republican National Committeewoman Cindy Costa as “foolish” on the eve of an election.
“Terrible. It’s a dumb thing to do,” said Costa, who did not take part in the vote but said precedent is being set to now “censure” Republican politicians any time they stray in the slightest.
