In addition to the Sunrise Movement D.C., the protest was organized by Shut Down D.C., which posted a statement on Facebook outlining why the protest was held outside Graham's home.

"Wakey wakey Senator!! We're outside Senator Lindsey Graham's house this morning taking his advice... we're using his words against him," the Facebook post said.

The protest comes as Graham and other Republican lawmakers look to quickly vote on a Supreme Court justice to be nominated by President Donald Trump, following the death of Ginsburg.

In several tweets posted on Saturday, Graham expressed his support for the Senate to vote on Trump's nominee prior to the November 3 election. As chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham would make the decision on whether to hold a confirmation hearing.

"I will support President @realDonaldTrump in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg," Graham wrote.

Lindsey Graham Says Senate Should 'Proceed Expeditiously' in Filling RBG's Supreme Court Seat

  Lindsey Graham Says Senate Should 'Proceed Expeditiously' in Filling RBG's Supreme Court Seat "I therefore think it is important that we proceed expeditiously to process any nomination made by President Trump to fill this vacancy," Senator Lindsey Graham wrote.With a majority of U.S. Supreme Court seats already held by conservatives, Ginsburg's passing gives the Trump administration an opportunity to appoint another conservative justice. Some Democrats have said that the seat should not be filled until after the November election. In 2018, Graham said that if an opening on the court came open during President Donald Trump's last year in office after primary elections had already begun, that the nomination process would not occur until after the election.

Following his tweet, many people, including those who organized the recent protest, brought up comments Graham made in 2016, when President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to fill a Supreme Court vacancy created by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.

"This is the last year of a lame-duck president, and if Ted Cruz or Donald Trump get to be president, they've all asked us not to confirm or take up a selection by President Obama," Graham said in 2016. "I want you to use my words against me. If there's a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let's let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination."
