Here’s what he said.
According to Breitbart News, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) praised 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg stating that he is “a force to be reckoned with.”
Graham said, “I think he was a good mayor, and I think he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with. If you’ve got $60 billion, you can tell your own story.”
He continued, “I think he’d be a force to be reckoned with, but the problem is I don’t know if the Bernie people would tolerate a Bloomberg.”
He added, “The Democratic Party is trying to find this identity between socialism, liberalism, and moderation, and all the energy seems to be with Bernie. I just don’t believe the Bernie voter would accept a Bloomberg candidacy.”
He concluded, “I don’t think he is in it just to hurt Trump. I think he’s in it to win it and come Super Tuesday if he’s already in the low teens polling nationally if he can grab some delegates on Super Tuesday, this is probably a brokered convention and he is going to be the guy to fill the Biden lane in his own mind.” You can watch Graham make his remarks here.
