What’s Graham’s Position

by Jonathan H. Adler

Last week, Senator Lindsay Graham told Hugh Hewitt that he would vote the Haynes nomination out of committee and would vote to end any filibuster of Haynes, but not for Haynes actual confirmation.  At ConfirmThem, however, Quin thinks Graham is implying a greater level of cooperation than he actually plans, as he will vote to Haynes out of commiteee but with a negative recommendation.  This could actually kill the nomination, but perhaps enable Graham to claim it was not his fault.
