Graham on DC Statehood: Unconstitutional, Bad Deal for South Carolina

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Steve Daines (R-Montana), and Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today held press conference to detail their opposition to making the District of Columbia a state.

  • GRAHAM: “From a South Carolina point of view, this is not a good deal for us…This would dilute South Carolina's say in the United States Senate and it would empower the most radical agenda in modern American politics.” https://youtu.be/K9Va6mX2Q2A?t=102
  • GRAHAM: “The point is that you see an effort by the most radical elements of the Democratic Party to reshape the country. Reshape the Senate. Reshape the House. Destroy policing as we know it. This is a fight worth having. I want every Senator to be on record.” https://youtu.be/K9Va6mX2Q2A?t=177
