Lindsey Graham: Presidency Is Ours To Lose

On Meet the Press Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said that the presidential election was the GOP’s “to lose.” And the way they could wind up losing it is in a prolonged primary battle where Republicans attack each other, similar to how Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry have attacked Romney’s time at Bain Capital.

Republicans, it seems, want the race to wrap up quickly so that they can find a nominee, presumable Romney, without weakening him too much to beat Obama. Graham said he thinks the Tea Party should give Romney a serious look, but also said he didn’t know who he would vote for in Saturday’s primary.
