The Daily Beast reports:
The business of a U.S. Supreme Court confirmation physically pulled Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) off the campaign trail just three weeks before the election during the race of his life. But he hardly checked that election at the door of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s chambers on Tuesday.
Graham, the committee chairman, invoked home state concerns and the fate of his campaign against Democrat Jaime Harrison multiple times during his half-hour block of questioning of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
“I don’t know what’s going on out there,” said Graham. “I can tell you there’s a lot of money being raised in this campaign. I would like to know where the hell some of it is coming from, but that is not your problem.”

“I would like to say where the hell some of it is coming from,” Graham says about fundraising and the influx of cash under Citizens United – as he’s getting swamped in fundraising and on TV ad spending in his Senate race. GOP blocked a bill taking aim at Citizens Union in 2010
