Graham to Cruz: We Tried That in South Carolina; Let’s Not Try Again

AP

We asked Lindsey Graham what he thinks about that Ted Cruz statement about guns and tyranny. He doesn’t agree.

“Well, we tried that once in South Carolina. I wouldn’t go down that road again. I think an informed electorate is probably a better check than, you know, guns in the streets.I’m not looking for an insurrection. I’m looking to defeat Hillary. We’re not going to out-gun her.”

And yes, in all my time running TPM, I’ve been waiting for this quote.
