South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham was criticized Wednesday after he referred to segregation as "the good old days" during Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearing. Though Graham, a Republican, later told reporters that he made the comment with "deep sarcasm," the incident drew quick backlash from his Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison, with whom Graham is battling for the state's Senate seat this election cycle. "The good old days for who, Senator?" Harrison said in a tweet accompanying a video clip of Graham's comment. "It's 2020, not 1920. Act like it."
