Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is on the verge of seeing his political career come to a premature end, especially since the object of his most fervent devotion, Donald Trump, looks like he may well be headed for the scrap heap when the votes are counted in November.
But despite this, Graham is desperately trying to put the proverbial happy face on his reelection effort, even going so far as to formally announce on recently that he had filed the paperwork required to serve another six-year term as the senior senator from the the Palmetto State:

Hooray! One of the biggest Trump lapdogs in the entire Senate is running so he can kiss Trump’s fat ass without interruption.
Things aren’t looking too rosy for Lindsey, with polls showing him holding only a slim two-point lead over his Democratic challenger, Jaime Harrison, the former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party who is raising a ton of money and also has powerful Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) on his side. Some polls even show Harrison leading the incumbent.
But more troubling for Sen. Graham is the response he received on Twitter to the video he posted. Based on the majority of the comments, Lindsey should be very worried about his future in the U.S. Congress:
We’re going to vote you out.
Do you want to know why?
It’s simple: You’re a Trumper & accept the suffering & deaths egoistically driven by him.

South Carolina deserves better than Lindsey Graham. Voters are ready for smart, informed decision making and want leaders who aren’t afraid to tell the truth! Senator Graham is frightened of Trump and can’t be trusted to think for himself. Time for a change, South Carolina!

I can not wait for you to lose your seat! You don’t deserve to be in OUR government!

I wish I could vote you out of office. I did the next best thing. I donated to @harrisonjaime. I hope you lose in a landslide, trump sycophant.

Nope. You’ve wrecked this country, economy, and our worldwide reputation. Why in the holy F**k would I ever vote for you Lindsey? Our relationship is over. You’re fired!

Looks like you might want to consider getting a head start on packing up the shit in your office, Lindsey. Hopefully you’re going to be sent into early retirement in a few months.
Good riddance to bad trash!
