Senator Lindsey Graham announced he would be donating $500,000 to the Trump campaign’s legal battle to contest vote counts in several swing states.
The president’s campaign has refused to concede the election as they pursue litigation in states in which they are disputing the validity of a number of ballots.
Graham boldly declared late Thursday that he is “here tonight to stand with President Trump” because it was the President who helped him retain his Senate seat.
“He stood with me; he’s the reason we’re gonna have a Senate majority. My race was overwhelming. He helped Senate Republicans,” a thankful Graham stated.
“We’re gonna pick up House seats because of the campaign that President Trump won.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham tells Fox News’ Sean Hannity he has donated $500,000 to Pres. Trump’s election defense fund:

Lindsey Graham Donation For President Trump’s Campaign
Graham’s stand with the President was a welcome move after others have seemingly abandoned Trump or have simply turned an ignorant blind eye to the possibility of fraud playing a part in the election.
Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who has an extensive history of turning tail when a difficult challenge presents itself, blasted Trump over his recent rhetoric regarding a stolen election.
“We heard nothing today about any evidence,” Christie said.
“This kind of thing, all it does is inflame without informing. And we cannot permit inflammation without information.”

The Political Insider’s Chris Barron directly confronted jelly-spined Republicans like Christie in a recent column.
“Either you stand with the overwhelming majority of your party in demanding that every single legally cast ballot is counted,” Barron challenged, “or you stand against them.”
The FEW Republicans Standing Up For Trump
With the exception of Graham, there have been very few Republicans speaking up in defense of the President.
Ronny Jackson, a former White House doctor who won his race to represent Texas’s 13th Congressional District, urged Republicans to stand up and fight for the man who helped them win across the board in Tuesday’s election.
“RINOs in the Republican Party need to STAND UP for President Trump and fight back against the Democrats and their election fraud,” he tweeted. “This election is too important!”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) compared the lack of faith in this year’s election to a ‘third impeachment’ attempt by Democrats.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) defended the President’s efforts to protect election integrity and slammed Fox News for their terrible election night call of Arizona.
Fox News & AP both made a HUGE mistake calling Arizona for Biden. Before the votes were counted.
Trump still has a real path to win AZ. So does McSally.
Even CNN admits it. https://t.co/Hwm7vliLSR

Rep. Paul Gosar has been on the front lines in Arizona as the contentious counting battle continues to wage.

Turning a blind eye to what is happening and has happened to President Trump for four years is a recipe for disaster for the Republican Party in the future.
At least there is still a handful of Republicans out there with the spine to fight back.
