Graham to Donate $500k to Trump Campaign for Legal Fight Disputing Election Results
'He stood with me; he’s the reason we’re gonna have a Senate majority'
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has announced he will be donating $500,000 to help assist the legal fight in the court system for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign as they challenge the election results in several states.
“I’m here tonight to stand with President Trump,” Graham said.
“He stood with me; he’s the reason we’re gonna have a Senate majority."
"My race was overwhelming.
"He helped Senate Republicans," he added.
"We’re gonna pick up House seats because of the campaign that President Trump won.”
Graham also took at the media's inaccurate reporting of the polls:
“Mainstream media polling is designed to suppress Republican votes. I won by 11, Susan [Collins] won by seven or eight [in Maine], Mitch [McConnell] won by 21 [in Kentucky]."
"It’s a game they play with their polling to depress the Republican vote.”
Graham's donation fund will be coming out of his campaign account, according to Associated Press reporter Meg Kinnard.
Graham’s announcement came after Donald Trump Jr. called out “2024 GOP hopefuls” for not showing support for the president.
“The total lack of action from virtually all of the ‘2024 GOP hopefuls’ is pretty amazing,” Donald Trump Jr. wrote.
“They have a perfect platform to show that they’re willing & able to fight, but they will cower to the media mob instead."
"Don’t worry @realDonaldTrump will fight & they can watch as usual!”

The news comes days after it was reported tha Democrats spent $104.1 million trying to unseat Graham, making it the most expensive loss in the history of the U.S. Senate.
Democrat Jaime Harrison's unsuccessful bid saw him raise $57 million during the final full quarter of the campaign, the largest single-quarter total by any candidate in US Senate history.
