“I was just saying hello. I haven’t seen her in a while. If it works and they succeed, I told him I wish him the best and will try to work where we can. We’ll find out here in a month or less, “Graham told CNN about meeting Harris.
Graham has been accused of pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger not to count mail-in ballots during the official recount. The southern state was won by Joe Biden, in one of the upsets of the election.
Trump and other high-profile Republicans remain unaware of Biden’s triumph.
