Sen. Graham: I’ll “go nuts” if people say Romney “wasn’t conservative enough”

If Romney loses, the South Carolina senator said, it's not because Romney was too moderate

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Jonathan Martin of Politico that “if we lose this election there is only one explanation — demographics.”

“If I hear anybody say it was because Romney wasn’t conservative enough I’m going to go nuts,” Graham said. “We’re not losing 95 percent of African-Americans and two-thirds of Hispanics and voters under 30 because we’re not being hard-ass enough.”
