Despite reportedly asking election officials in several states if they could throw out certain ballots, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared to congratulate Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris on the Senate floor Tuesday, giving a fist bump to the California Democrat. Fellow Republican Sens. Mike Rounds, Tim Scott, and James Lankford also congratulated Harris, according to CNN’s Manu Raju. The pleasantries offered a stark contrast to President Trump, who continues to baselessly assert that he won the election as his legal team fights to throw out ballots in several states. Graham, a staunch ally of Trump, allegedly suggested Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger should reject certain ballots during the state’s ongoing recount, a claim that was later corroborated by one of Raffensperger’s staffers. Unofficial results show the Biden-Harris ticket leading in Georgia by about 14,000 votes, but even a Trump victory in the Peach State would not be enough to swing the electoral college in the president’s favor.
