ORLANDO, Fla. — There was a time when Sen. Lindsey Graham wasn’t attracting a crowd for his own 2016 presidential bid. Now he’s a bit of a rock star to the Republican faithful.
The South Carolina Republican is nearing the end of a cross-country tour that will bring him to a dozen states on behalf of Republican House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates — and yes, under the auspices of the Republican National Committee, President Donald Trump.
