Graham’s comments came as he was responding to Democratic criticism of the Republican process for moving Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination. Republicans set up a committee vote on her nomination for next week, and the full Senate is expected to hold a vote on her by the end of the month.
“Democrats generally look at people of a disposition like Justice [Sonia] Sotomayor and [Elena] Kagan. Now, y’all have a good chance of winning the White House. I don’t know where the polls are going to be,” said Graham, the Judiciary panel chairman.
