South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham was speaking recently at the Poinsett Club in Greenville, South Carolina when he opened up the floor to questions.  When a person in the audience asked him his opinions on Article V, he at first didn’t appear to understand his question.  I can’t imagine how many questions from constituents these politicians have to field every day, but Graham didn’t miss a beat.

“A Convention of States? Tom Coburn and all those guys? Why didn’t you just say so?”  The audience laughed a bit.  Then, he made his position clear: he said a Convention of States “makes perfect sense to me.”

Sen. Graham’s comments begin at 36:20 in the video below, if you’d like to see them for yourself.  Graham joins a long list of influential people who believe a Convention of States is a great way to move this nation forward.  (In fact, it is the only way.) He joins Talk show host and pundit Mark Levin, Fox News’s Sean Hannity, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University,Dr. Everett Piper, among many many more.
