(National Sentinel)Â Staying Put: Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters on Monday that he has “zero interest” in working for POTUS Donald Trump and that he’s “definitely” running again for the Senate.
â€œWell, Iâ€™m going to run [for Senate] again â€” there ya go, you made news â€” Iâ€™m definitely running,â€ Graham told a reporter outside of a Pickens County GOP event, The Daily Caller reported.Â â€œI enjoy my job. I think Iâ€™m better at it today than Iâ€™ve ever been. I love my job. I love representing the people of our state.”
There are rumors that Graham, R-S.C., has been angling to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general with his effusive praise for POTUS and his recent passionate defense of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
This is a paragraph of content.
But he quashed those rumors about as forcefully as anyone could on Monday.
â€œI have zero interest in serving in President Trumpâ€™s cabinet,â€Â GrahamÂ said. â€œI like him, I want to help him be successful. I think I can do more good for the country and help President Trump more effectively by being in the Senate and I will help him where I can and say no when I have to, and Iâ€™m going to continue to be South Carolinaâ€™s voice the best I know how to be.â€
He added:Â â€œIâ€™m at a time in my life when I feel like all the things Iâ€™ve done before have made me the most effective in terms of representing the people in the state,â€Â GrahamÂ said. â€œIf theyâ€™ll have me, Iâ€™ll keep doing it.â€
Graham reportedly played golf with POTUS Trump after the Senate on Saturday confirmed Kavanaugh as the nation’s 114th SCOTUS justice.
Reporters and pundits continue to speculate on @LindseyGrahamSC plans for the future.
Tonight in South Carolina he again made it clear:
1) Definitely running for reelection to the Senate in 2020.
2) ZERO INTEREST in serving as Attorney General or in the Cabinet.
