CONCORD, N.H. -- BenSwann.com reported Wednesday on a recent speech from U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), during which he said he would "literally use the military to keep [Congress]" in session to deal with non-compliance on defense spending. Graham was speaking to the Concord City Republican Committee, a stump speech ahead of a potential 2016 presidential run.

“…and here is the first thing I would do if I were President of the United States, I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to.” - U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)

The article, written by Ron Noyes, also includes a response from Graham's U.S. Senate primary opponent:
