Dobbs, a veteran TV host and staunch supporter of President Trump, criticized the South Carolina Republican over his decision not to subpoena the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter after concerns were raised about potential liberal bias in their fact-checking and social media monitoring of news articles and comments.

Graham had announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, were close to getting a voluntary appearance by the heads of the company, and he would wait until after the Nov. 3 election to have a hearing with the Silicon Valley executives.

How South Carolina became one of 2020’s most unexpected Senate battlegrounds

  How South Carolina became one of 2020’s most unexpected Senate battlegrounds The historically Republican state is now considered a toss-up.In a state where no Democrat has won a Senate seat for more than two decades, former South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison has fielded an incredibly strong challenge to incumbent Sen. Lindsey Graham, a high-profile Trump ally. Although early polling had Harrison lagging Graham by as much as 17 percentage points in February, recent surveys have the two lawmakers in a statistical tie.

On Monday, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham got some very unwelcome news.

South Carolina is a red state, without question -- but that didn't stop one man from yelling out the rallying cry "Yes we can" at a recent gathering for Jaime Harrison, a Democrat who hopes to challenge longtime Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham in the fall.

But, Dobbs didn't stop there when attacking Graham.

Dobbs pointed to unanswered questions regarding an investigation led by Graham into whether Obama administration officials had improperly targeted President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign amid the Russia investigation. Graham has long gone on cable news shows hinting at major developments in his investigation, but substantial information has yet to come out about what occurred in that time frame.

"I don’t know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham," Dobbs said. "It is just outrageous. This is a 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."

  Election live updates: Trump votes in Florida, candidates and friends fan out to make their closing pitches The candidates and their surrogates have a hectic day of campaigning with just 10 days left in the election. President Trump is voting Saturday morning in West Palm Beach and then has a trio of appearances in North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin. Vice President Pence is headlining two rallies in Florida.

Senator Lindsey Graham skipped a debate and insisted he would not return to his home state of South Carolina until Supreme Court nominee Judge However, other surveys showed Mr Graham with an advantage, including a recent New York Times/Siena College poll that showed him with a

Lindsey Graham has never gotten over 55 percent of the vote in his elections. You peel the onion But Trumpism is the Republican Party. Isn’t Graham simply doing what conservative Republicans want in your For me, people are hurting in South Carolina and for years I recruited candidates to run.

Dobbs also played back Trump's one-time animosity towards Graham, whom he called a "disgrace" in 2016. Graham and Trump have since developed a better relationship, but Graham is typically not considered a loyalist to the president like some of his other Republican colleagues.

"Graham has betrayed President Trump at almost every turn," Dobbs said. "He has betrayed the American people and his oath of office. He's done absolutely nothing to investigate Obamagate except to tell everyone 'Stay tuned.' Time and time again, 'Stay tuned.' Senator Graham needs to be tuned out in South Carolina."

Graham, who has held his seat since 2003, is facing a competitive challenge from Democrat Jaime Harrison, whose fundraising efforts have broken national records in the 2020 campaign cycle. The race, likely one of the most closely watched in the country, is considered a "Toss Up" by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.
