Lindsey Graham says odds of deal are “exceedingly good,” but hints at another debt ceiling fight.
WASHINGTON — South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham conceded defeat in the fiscal cliff negotiations Sunday morning, saying "hats off to the president."
In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Graham complimented President Barack Obama for sticking to his guns in talks with congressional Republicans.
"He stood his ground. He's going to get tax rate increases," Graham said. "It will be a political victory for the president."
"The president won. The president campaigned on raising rates and he's going to get a rate increase," he added.
