Graham Says GOP Is In a Death Spiral

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who helped write a bipartisan immigration bill under debate in the Senate, said "conservatives who are trying to block the measure will doom the party and all but guarantee a Democrat will remain in the White House after 2016's election," the AP reports.

Said Graham: "If we don't pass immigration reform, if we don't get it off the table in a reasonable, practical way, it doesn't matter who you run in 2016. We're in a demographic death spiral as a party and the only way we can get back in good graces with the Hispanic community in my view is pass comprehensive immigration reform. If you don't do that, it really doesn't matter who we run in my view."
