Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is increasingly concerned that Donald Trump will cost his party the majority in the U.S. Senate.

In a New York Times article Friday, Graham told the paper that “people are getting pretty nervous about our candidates because he’s in a death spiral here and nobody knows where the bottom is at.”

In races across the country, Hillary Clinton’s double digit leads are making it almost impossible for Republican candidates to stay afloat. Yet, many in the party worry that completely disavowing Trump at this point could make matters worse as Republican voters may not even show up at the polls.

“It’s going to be like ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’ — you got to make him look alive, even if he’s not,” Graham told the Times.
