Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he wants to see former President Donald Trump focus more on problems Americans are dealing with daily and less on the 2020 election. He said he supports election integrity policies but voters are tired of hearing about the past.
According to The Hill:
Graham told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” that he supports election integrity policies but reiterated that voters are tired of hearing about the last presidential election.
“If he runs for president, talking about 2020 is not what people want to hear. He likes hearing it, but people want to hear about how you can secure a broken border, how you can stop rampant crime,” the senator said. “That’s what people want to hear. … I’m telling [former] President Trump if you want to be president in 2024, focus on the problems Americans are living with.”
Trump has consistently endorsed candidates who repeat his claims of election fraud in GOP primary battles across the country in House, Senate and gubernatorial races. He’s also weighed in on local elections, propping up candidates who, if elected, would oversee election results in their states in 2024.
Graham told CNN the “performance of the Biden administration” has put the GOP in a good position ahead of the midterm elections, and the party should focus on core issues such as the economy heading into November.
