The comments from the pro-Trump commentator came as Graham fights for his Senate career in a tight election battle with Democrat Jaime Harrison.

Dobbs was enraged over Graham's commitment to hold hearings on social media censorship with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after Election Day.

Said Dobbs: "Graham has betrayed President Trump at nearly every turn, he has betrayed the American people and his oath of office, he's done absolutely nothing to investigate Obamagate except to tell everyone stay tuned, time and time again, stay tuned, Senator Graham needs to be tuned out in SC". Lindsey Graham (S.C.), asking why anyone would vote for the Republican lawmaker just weeks before his hotly contested election.

The campaign said it had just over $13 million cash on hand, although the software error incorrectly listed the amount as about $7.3 million. 'This is the guy who keeps saying, "Stay tuned".

Dobbs rattled off a bunch of attacks then-candidate Donald Trump leveled against Graham in 2016, including "he's one of the dumbest human beings I've ever seen".

Last month, Tucker Carlson blasted Graham for allegedly setting Trump up in connection with damaging interviews the senator "brokered" with liberal reporter Bob Woodward.

"I believe that the president's words about the senator then apply today", Dobbs said.

'He has betrayed the American people and his oath of office. He's done absolutely nothing to investigate Obamagate except to tell everyone, 'stay tuned.' Time and time again, 'stay tuned.' Sen.

Though South Carolina remains a deeply red state, where Graham has handily won every race since first entering the Senate in 2003, Harrison's campaign has turned heads.

It also attracted praise from the anti-Trump GOP group The Lincoln Project.

According to the Fox Business host - arguably the most servile, sycophantic media ally of USA president Donald Trump - Graham does not deserve support from SC conservatives.

"Lindsey Graham is a weak man with a weak character", the Lincoln Project said in a particularly brutal statement. "While we hate to give Lou Dobbs any credibility, when he's right, he's right and should be commended for calling out Graham for being the pathetic swamp rat he is". In the third quarter of this year, Harrison raised $57 million, the most ever brought in by a Senate candidate in a quarterly fundraising period, in any state. Ted Cruz in 2018. This month, polls by Morning Seek the advice of and Information for Progress present Harrison within the lead by simply 1-2 factors, whereas a Siena Faculty/New York Occasions ballot reveals the Democrat trailing behind Graham by 6-points.

While Graham did vote to authorize subpoenas for the tech CEOs on Thursday, joining the 11 other Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, he indicated the move would merely serve as "leverage" to secure voluntary testimony at a hearing after the presidential race.

The executives will testify on allegations of anti-conservative bias, the committee said.

Twitter claimed that they placed the restrictions on the articles as they contained personal information such as phone numbers, as well as information that had been hacked.
