'Good old days of segregation' comment was sarcasm: Graham

'Good old days of segregation' comment was sarcasm: Graham”

He also addressed the partisan divide on confirming for Republican-nominated judges and noted that, while he was upset that the late John McCain (R-AZ) did not defeat then Sen.

Democrats have appealed to wait for the election, arguing that voting is already in process and voters should have a say in which president gets to pick Ginsburg's successor.

"And one of the reasons you can say with confidence that you think Brown v. Board of Education is super-precedent is that you're not aware of any effort to go back to the good old days of segregation by a legislative body". "While Ranking Member Feinstein let Judge Barrett slide by without asking her if she is a rapist, Senator Hirono saved the day". It's 2020, not 1920.

Locked in a tight race with Democratic opponent Jamie Harrison, Republican Sen.

Graham bristled that his remark - "made with dripping sarcasm" - had become controversial when he talked to reporters in Capitol Hill's corridors afterward.

After congratulating his opponent on a record-setting $58 million raised last quarter, Graham added: "I never felt better about my campaign than I do right now". If you want to help me close the gap, [go to] lindseygraham.com.

As expected, Graham's comment raised eyebrows, and he was immediately called out.

One of those is Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark 1954 case that struck down racial segregation in public schools. "This profile in desperate and unethical behavior is unbecoming of a US senator - and it is yet another demonstration of why Sen".

He chided Harrison for 'a game we're playing here with the people of SC'.

If Harrison defeats Graham, South Carolina - whose secession kicked off the Civil War - would become the first state in US history to send two Black senators to Washington at the same time.

'I want to assure the people of SC: that statement was made with dripping sarcasm, ' the senator added.

"This is a crime @LindseyGrahamSC committed a crime in plain sight", Swalwell wrote on Twitter.

Released Thursday, the poll of 605 likely voters taken from October 9-15 showed Graham leading with a 46% to Harrison's 40%. Graham announced he brought in $28 million, which is the largest amount raised by a senator.
