Graham Accepts Challenge

Senator Lindsey Graham, a regular on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said last night that he thinks the NSA is doing a good job in preventing potential attacks. This statement comes as a response to the recent Snowden scandal, and a desire from democrats in Congress to reform the institution and scale back its funding. He said on the show, “To members of the Congress who want to reform the NSA program, great. But if you want to gut it, you make us much less safe and you’re putting our nation at risk,”Graham, who will now face a primary battle with fellow Republican Nancy Mace, has been criticized for being “too easy” on foreign policy. In particular, for not pressing hard enough on Benghazi. Graham said that if they want to reduce the NSA, they need to be ready to put other policies in place that protect the US from external and internal threats. Senator Graham is close allies within the senate with Senator McCain. They were asked by President Obama to travel to Egypt and give a “cohesive” message. Graham also said that he is ready for Nancy Mace’s challenge, and he will continue to press on the issues that his constituents care about.
