Harry Reid's new best pal.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) emerged easily
from the pack of kooks in his primary Tuesday, only to start his general re-election campaign with this rousing endorsement
from Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid:
“I believe the Republicans should follow the lead of Lindsey Graham. Lindsey Graham was part of the Gang of Eight to come up with immigration reform. He never backed down, backed up. He kept going forward on this issue,” Reid said.
That's sure to help the good senator from South Carolina in November! But it's not just on immigration reform, Reid says, on which Graham has been oh, so helpful.
“We need more Republicans who are Lindsey Grahams,” he added. “Lindsey Graham is a very conservative man, but I’ve worked with him on a number of issues, some of which we don’t even talk about publicly.”
For some reason, Huckleberry hasn't emerged to thank Reid for those very kind words about just how willing he is to reach across the aisle and help Democrats get things done, even in secret. Go figure.
