political leanings of Lindsey Graham

The following boxes contain other miscellaneous indicators used in forming an opinion on Lindsey Graham. Hopefully you will use them to form your own opinion.





Censure of Lindsey Graham



The Republican Party is divided. On one side of the divide are the Establishment Republicans (some prefer the term RINO which is short for Republican in Name Only) and on the other side of the divide are the Conservative Republicans. The link below is to a short article pointing out that Senator Graham has been censured by the County Republican Parties in five of the 46 counties in South Carolina.(1)

Lindsey Graham Has Racked up 5 GOP Censures in Just 3 Months...
October 30, 2013


This is significant as it is a strong indicator that Senator Graham is firmly in either the Establishment Republican or Conservative Republican camp as even divided political parties don't censure their own elected officials unless there is serious discontent with that elected official. If Senator Graham is firmly in one camp the evidence is that this would be the Establishment Republican camp.

You can probably open the Greenville County censure if your computer has the Adobe Reader software on it which most computers come with these days. This is the most extreme. It is very strongly worded and contains over twenty points. Please click here to look for yourself.


(1) As of 4/2014 there have been two more censures for a new total of eight counties.
