Fox Business Host Lou Dobbs Says Residents Of The South Carolina Vote Against Lindsey Graham

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs spoke out against Senator Lindsey Graham‘s re-election in South Carolina, almost a week before the Republican lawmaker’s competitive election.

The Tonight With Lou Dobbs host criticized the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman for “not subpoenaing the left-wing heads of the censorships Twitter and Facebook until after the election.” It comes as Graham told reporters on Friday that the executives of the two largest social media platforms will testify on allegations of anti-conservative bias after the November 3 election.

“I don’t know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham. It’s just outrageous,” Dobbs said. “This is the guy who keeps saying, ‘Stay tuned.’ He said he would get to the bottom of Obamagate with the Judiciary Committee, which has been a year and a half, actually longer, of absolute inert response to these pressing issues of our day.”

The host’s rant went viral on social media, gaining over 3 million views after airing on Friday night.

Graham’s hotly contested Senate race against Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison has been considered a toss-up for a few months, with polling percentages getting narrower. This month, polls by Morning Consult and Data for Progress show Harrison in the lead by just 1-2 points, while a Siena College/New York Times poll shows the Democrat trailing behind Graham by 6-points.

The two candidates have gone head-to-head in fundraising throughout the Senate race. Earlier this month, Harrison’s campaign announced that he raised a record $57 million from July to September, the highest quarterly fundraising total for any Senate candidate in U.S. history, while Graham raised $28 million in the third quarter. Graham has repeatedly suggested that his opponent’s source of funds should be investigated.

Anti-Trump conservative group The Lincoln Project praised Dobbs’ comments on Twitter.

“The Lincoln Project rarely agrees with Lou Dobbs, but today we join in his sentiments that South Carolinians should not re-elect the spineless, do-nothing dead weight Senator Lindsey Graham,” the group wrote in a statement.

Newsweek reached out to Graham’s campaign for comment Saturday.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to subpoena Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey a week after both platforms limited sharing of a controversial article that made claims against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden‘s son, Hunter Biden, and flagging it as spreading disinformation.

Democrats boycotted the hearing in protest of the committee’s recent vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett.
