Lindsey Graham: Nominating Paul Ryan at the Convention Would Destroy the GOP

I guess he's rebutting the word put out by the Trump campaign that a vote for Cruz is really a vote for Paul Ryan.

But this is a pretty strong statement.

"Let me say this, my Republican friends: If you parachute somebody in just on electability -- Paul Ryan's a wonderful guy, doesn't want to be put in this position. I'm trying to get us the most viable nominee for 2016 that could win without destroying the party," Graham said. "I think Trump destroys the party. And if you parachute somebody in, and try to ignore millions of votes, you're going to destroy this party. So we're right back to Ted."

Asked how Republicans who hate Cruz could support him, he said, "If I can do it, anyone can do it."

Kinda funny.
