Graham Opening Statement


Graham effectively attacks the notion that Senator Kennedy and other Democrats can fairly assess who is a “mainstream conservative”. Makes clear the genuine interests on both sides of the abortion issue. Criticizes the Dems’ single-issue litmus test on abortion.

Abortion of course is the driving reason for Dem opposition to Alito. If Alito were clearly committed to Roe, you wouldn’t hear squat about any of the other issues that Dems are using as camouflage for their abortion-based opposition.
