Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters at CPAC on Thursday that he thinks New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should have been invited, saying that the GOP governor is a “good voice” within the Republican Party.

“It’s up to the people (who organized CPAC) to invite him,” Graham (R-S.C.) said. “But I think he’s a good voice in the Republican Party. Yeah, I would’ve like to have seen him invited. I just think he represents an element of the party, but it’s up to people here.”
