COLUMBIA — U.S. Sen. John McCain told The New York Times that he is praying Sarah Palin stays out of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's Republican primary this summer.
From the story:
When I read Cruzs quote about owing his success to Palin, McCain shrugs. Palin has suggested, too, that she might support Tea Party primary challengers to the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, in Kentucky and to Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, whom McCain has likened to a son. Oh, I pray she wouldnt do that, he says of Graham. And you know, I find it hard to believe that she would. He points out that Palin has never said anything critical about him, that she campaigned in Arizona for him in 2010. And then he adds, again: Ive moved on. Whats the statute of limitations on this issue?
In August, McCain told The New Republic that Graham "is like a son to me."
