Regarding Mitch McConnell’s speech sharply condemning the former President Trump, Graham said that McConnell’s speech will show up amid the 2022 election cycle.

Graham said that McConnell “got a load off his chest obviously. But unfortunately he put a load on the back of Republicans. That speech you will see in 2022 campaigns. I would imagine if you’re a Republican running in Arizona, or Georgia, or New Hampshire, where we have a chance to take back the Senate, they may be playing Senator McConnell’s speech and asking you about it as a candidate,” Graham said, also noting that he anticipates GOP incumbents facing the questions about whether they will back McConnell in the future.
