Wow, Lindsay Graham is in trouble.
Sen. Graham finds himself in hot water back home in S.C.
By James Rosen
WASHINGTON - Lee Rogers, chairman of the Republican Party in Anderson County, S.C., was at the beach last week when his cell phone rang.
It was an urgent call from one of Rogers' GOP activists.
"He asked me what I was going to do to find somebody to run against Lindsey Graham (next year)," Rogers said. "I explained to the gentleman that's not something I can put together as a single county chairman. That's got to happen with the people."
It could be happening.
Graham, nearing the end of his first Senate term, has taken plenty of heat before, but perhaps never like this.
Thanks to his high-profile help in crafting an immigration reform bill that has stalled in the Senate, constituents call and leave screaming messages on his office voicemail.
"NO AMNESTY! NO AMNESTY!" one repeat caller yells for a minute or more in angry overnight messages that greet his aides in the morning.
Huh. I thought having a southern accent made you invulnerable in the GOP.
