Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C. ) joined the chorus of Republicans backing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky. ) for cutting off Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass. ) during a speech criticizing Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week.
“The bottom line is it was long overdue with her, I mean she is clearly running for the nomination in 2020,” he told radio host Mike Gallagher on Wednesday in a clip obtained by CNN’s KFile.
Warren quoted a letter on the Senate floor Tuesday night written by civil rights activist Coretta Scott King, Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow, in an effort to highlight concerns about Sessions when he was under consideration for a federal judgeship in 1986. He was rejected for the position over allegations of prejudice against African-Americans.
