Actions speak louder than words. U.S. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has yet to comprehend this simple admonition. In his campaign for re-election, he continuously boasts his pro-life voting record and rails on about the Benghazi scandal. He beats the conservative drums on these issues to attract the votes of the gullible. But what is his real record on these issues?

He voted to confirm Obama’s two radical, left-wing nominees to the Supreme Court Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. He thus supported the fact that the Court will continue Roe v. Wade for a long time to come. Graham will continue to exploit the abortion issue in this and future elections. Likewise, Graham blasts the State Department on Benghazi, yet applauds Clinton who has yet to answer questions on her role in this disaster. She is as arrogant as ever on this issue, still Graham does not have the consistent conservative record that S.C. needs in its U.S. senator. Vote for one of the contenders and force a runoff on June 10.
