Default 'Help me': Graham begs for cash in tighter-than-expected race...

Lindsey Graham started the summer with more cash in the bank than any Republican senator other than Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. But now he’s begging for money. Twice on Thursday, Graham, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, went on Fox News Channel and implored viewers to donate to his campaign against Democrat Jaime Harrison in South Carolina, a closer-than-expected contest that Republicans need to win to protect their majority. “I’m getting overwhelmed,” Graham told conservative talk-show host Sean Hannity Thursday night. “LindseyGraham.com. Help me. They’re killing me, money-wise. Help me. You helped me last week — help me again. LindseyGraham.com.”

The story of how Graham became so desperate for cash illustrates the expensive, toss-up battle to control the Senate and the energy around President Donald Trump’s pending Supreme Court nomination. Grassroots Democrats are hyperactivated to take on Republican leaders like Graham, who once burnished a moderate reputation but has aligned closely with Trump.

Graham’s pleas have escalated over the past week since Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, but trouble has been looming for the third-term senator for some time now. Harrison has outraised and outspent Graham in every fundraising period this year, and the polls have the candidates running neck and neck, despite Trump’s lead over Joe Biden in the state.

Manchurian Trump

If Trump does prove to be the "Manchurian Candidate", as is looking increasingly likely, what then?

He has access to ALL of America's secrets and it's a bit late to make him "unknow" what he already knows.

Default Monday night debate........

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins and Democratic challenger Sara Gideon clashed Monday over the Supreme Court and the response to the pandemic during their second debate in the closely watched Senate race.

Gideon, the Maine House speaker, accused the four-term Collins of failing to use her seniority to show results for the people of Maine, especially when additional help is needed during the pandemic. Collins said the Paycheck Protection Program she authored saved hundreds of thousands of jobs while noting that the Maine Legislature adjourned during the pandemic. “She adjourned the legislature on March 17 and hasn't lifted a finger to do anything about the coronavirus. She promised to provide aid to small businesses but did not do so," Collins said.


Collins is facing the toughest campaign of her career as she seeks a fifth term in Washington. Democrats, meanwhile, view unseating Collins as key to retaking control of the Senate. The importance of the race is underscored by the millions of dollars pouring into Maine, making it the most expensive political race in state history.

Both Gideon and Collins agree on one thing: Both think the current vacancy on the court shouldn't be filled until after the election. Gideon accused Collins of rubber-stamping 181 of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees, saying “that has pushed the Supreme Court far to the right and made it very ideological.” She said the Supreme Court is about to take up the Affordable Care Act and potentially take health care away in the middle of a pandemic.



Well you got one thing right Susan, someone might be taking your place! Hopefully sooner than later

I know she's a Republican but I sure would love to see Anna Navarro demolish Trump in a debate...and I've no doubt she would leave him thrashing like a stomped cockroach .
