The term Republican in Name Only – or RINO – aptly applies to U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.


The fact that he votes more than 50 percent of the time with President Barack Obama’s administration is proof that he no longer represents his conservative constituents. Of the 45 Republicans in the U.S. Senate, he is the fifth or sixth most liberal.


Now that Graham is running for re-election, he is posing once again as a conservative. Don’t be fooled.


If re-elected, he will forget his conservative promises and return to his left-leaning ways. Graham faces several credible challengers in the primary who deserve the attention of both the voters and the media. Pick any one, and you will find a better conservative candidate than Graham.


Don’t forget to vote in the primary on June 10.
