Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) publicly agreed with Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) who told red state Democrats that they are “toast” if they vote against the conformation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“I absolutely agree with Senator Graham,” Ernst said. “And Lindsey has been a hero through this process. He clearly sees what is going on. He has been able to demonstrate that in clear, concise language for everyone, which we all appreciate. But I do believe that those Democrats that are in red states, those that are up this year, they are going to have a very, very difficult time. If they do not support Judge Kavanaugh, you know, if they are willing to stand up and say it’s okay to be torn down and accused of horrendous actions and get away with that, I think they’re gone.”
