Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has been a staunch supporter of President Trump, vigorously defended to certify the electoral votes on the Senate floor.

Graham said he believed voting to object the results are a “uniquely bad idea to delay this election.”

“Trump and I, we’ve had a hell of a journey. I hate it to end this way. Oh my God, I hate it. From my point of view he’s been been a consequential president. But today, first thing you’ll see. All I can say, is count me out, enough is enough,” Graham said.

Graham defended his stance by citing a number of cases in which Trump had lost, including the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision on election results.

“We’ve got to end it. Vice President Pence, what they’re asking you to do you won’t do, because you can’t,” he said.

Graham ended his remarks by fully backing the election results. “It is over… [Biden] won. He’s the legitimate President to the United States… Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected and will become the President and the Vice President of the United States on January 20,” he said.
