WASHINGTON, DC—Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) upped the aggressive political rhetoric today by threatening that when the GOP regains control of Congress, “we’re going to write several strongly-worded letters a day!”
This goes above and beyond the single strongly-worded letter the GOP has written since the Democrats took over Congress in 2020.
Some Republicans have cautioned that this may be too drastic.
“Mr. Graham may have misspoken,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “We certainly don’t want to poke the bear so to speak and upset the other side of the aisle. I think one strongly-worded letter a week should be enough.”
Democrats took the threat to heart though.
“The GOP is out of control. We cannot let these extremists undermine democracy with any strongly-worded letters, let alone several a day. That’s just insane,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.
