Lindsey Graham on South Carolina: '30 years of getting it right'

Ahead of the key South Carolina primary, SC Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN's Erin Burnett he has yet to make his personal choice on which candidate to support, but will by the time he heads to the polls Saturday. As for the state's choice, Graham said South Carolina picks winners, citing "a history of thirty years of getting it right." Since 1980, nobody has been elected president without winning the South Carolina primary.

As for the intensity of the campaign, Graham said the political ad-soaked airwaves have him missing "car commercials." Graham also said the flood of Super PAC money into the campaign will ultimately lead to a "revolt" by voters.
