Senator Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) doesn’t have time in his busy schedule to hold any town halls during the August recess, even though he suggested just last month that immigration reform activists should target House Republicans at town halls when they are at home in their districts.
Politico reported on July 17:
Senators like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) (R-Ariz), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) met with tech giants such as Microsoft, Google and Intel, and pro reform groups like FWD.us to discuss a coordinated campaign to target more than 100 House Republicans on reforming the nation’s immigration laws when they are at home in their districts over the next month, according to sources familiar with the meeting.
Graham suggested getting people to target Republicans at town hall meetings. Schumer said he wanted pastors giving sermons about the need for immigration reform.
But when it comes to holding his own town halls, the Senator demurs?

I bet there are a lot of South Carolinans who would love to talk to Senator Graham about his stance on immigration reform.
