Lindsey Graham on 2nd-tier debate: ‘I think it sucks’

Graham zeroes in on national security.

He had two chances to talk before the first break – and both times he made sure to make it about his pet topic, even when it seemed to have little to do with the questions. “Without national security, there is no economic security.“I think it sucks,” the South Carolina U.S. senator told a CNN reception on the eve of the debate, discussing the one hour debate featuring four Republicans low in polls. “With all due respect, I know there are a lot of us running, but I don’t think I’m an undercard candidate when it comes to national security. I think I’ve got something to offer.” At the reception, moderator Dana Bash got Graham to play a popular bar game she called “date, marry or disappear forever.” He was asked about Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina and Sarah Palin as his choices. “On our side, you’ve got the No. 2 guy (who) tried to stab somebody at 14 and the No. 1 is high energy and crazy as hell,” Graham said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to Carson, who has recalled the violent instant recently, and Trump.

Graham conceded two of the three: He would date Sarah Palin — “we’ll go hunting on our first date” — and marry Carly Fiorina — “’cause she’s rich; she could keep me in the life I’m accustomed to.” But, Graham wouldn’t quite go so far as to say he would make Hillary Clinton disappear forever.
