Lindsey Graham: If I can support Ted Cruz, "anybody can do it"

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, is pushing the Republican party to rally behind Ted Cruz as the “primary alternative” to presidential front-runner Donald Trump, despite Graham’s long and storied history of opposing his Senate colleague.

“Ted Cruz is Republican,” Graham said early Friday in a “CBS This Morning” interview. “He’s smart as hell. He’s run a very effective campaign. We have a lot in common but we also have some real differences. He is a real Republican from the more ideological spectrum than I am but he would not destroy our party.”

“I’m trying to get us the most viable nominee for 2016 that could win without destroying the party,” Graham said. “The bottom line is millions of people have gone to the polls and cast their ballot, and if 2000 of us take that choice away, then I think we destroy the Republican party forever.”
