Congressman Dana Rohrabacher: McCain & Graham Do Not Represent the Republican Party


Rep. Dana Rohrabacher told C-SPAN Tuesday that Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC-R) and John McCain (AZ-R) don’t speak for the rest of the Republican Party.

Rohrabacher said, “I wish people in the media would quit focusing on, and I wish the administration would quit focusing on, Lindsey and John McCain as spokesmen for the party because they are not. There is a lot of resentment from the party that these two guys have presented themselves as spokesmen for the Republican Party, and they are not spokesman for the Republicans. They are spokesmen for themselves.”

Rohrabacher noted that there are a number of issues, like immigration, where their views are not reflective of the large number of Republicans.

Rohrabacher said that Americans oppose their military interventionism too.

“I think the American people are war weary,” he said. “It was a mistake to follow George Bush into Iraq. It costs $1 trillion and so many thousands and thousands of lives were destroyed between those who died and those who now have broken bodies, and now we are going to have to take care of them.”
Both Graham and McCain are both liberal Republicans who have earned the ire of Tea Party activists and grassroots conservatives.

Recently, McCain was censured by the Arizona Republican Party for being too liberal and Graham has been censured by 7 Republican groups in South Carolina.

Graham is facing 4 challengers in the Republican primary: businessman Richard Cash, businesswoman Nancy Mace, State Sen. Lee Bright, and combat veteran Lt. Col. Bill Connor.

Challengers need to get Graham under 50 percent of the vote in the June primary to force the race to a one-on-one challenge between Graham and whoever comes in second place.

As Michael Lotfi pointed out last week, Graham is in trouble, citing a recent poll conducted by Wenzel Strategies.
