South Carolina Republican senator and former presidential candidate Lindsey Graham is no fan of Donald Trump and is still firmly planted in the Never Trump camp.
On Thursday morning, Lindsey Graham appeared on CNN to discuss the presidential race, expressing regret that he could not get himself to support the Republican nominee (he’s not supporting Hillary Clinton either) but admitted that Trump still has a chance to win.
However, on the heels of Trump running mate Mike Pence’s stellar VP debate performance, Graham said that if Pence were at the top of the ticket, he would be “enthusiastically” supporting him. Moreover, in a hypothetical primary between Mike Pence and Donald Trump, Graham said he would “vote for Mike Pence.”
“I would be enthusiastically supporting Mike Pence for President of the United States if he were the nominee of the party.”
It should come as no shock that Graham has still not supported Trump considering the GOP primary in which Donald Trump gave out Lindsey Graham’s personal cell phone to the public at a press conference in which he said Graham “doesn’t seem like a very bright guy.” Of course, Graham, for his part, had referred to Trump as a “jackass,” so he wasn’t a complete innocent wallflower.
Graham barely registered in the polls during the GOP primary, with his only supporter seemingly being friend Senator John McCain , meaning that Trump’s feud with Graham was probably very unnecessary.
