South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) predicts President Trump will be helpful to GOP incumbents in 2022. Graham weighed in on Trump’s influence on the Republican Party in a radio interview Friday.
He noted the party has a lot of great senators facing re-election next year, but added the former President is working with them to help them win their races. Graham also said Trump will help Republicans unseat Democrats in states like Arizona, Georgia and New Hampshire.
