(CNN) - A fierce congressional critic of the Obama administration's foreign policy gave the President credit Thursday for recent actions he's taken in the ongoing situation in Ukraine.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said on CNN's "Crossfire" that Obama had done “a very good job” in the last 24 hours. The South Carolina Republican added “I appreciate what he did today. Thank God he’s upping his game.”
Washington (CNN) – Republican Sen. Dean Heller voted to filibuster the bill to raise the debt ceiling Wednesday, after telling CNN the night before that he did not support fellow Sen. Ted Cruz’s plan to do the same.
“Well, I don't think it's right, because at the end of the day, we're going to pass a clean debt ceiling increase, with Ted or without Ted's support, with my support or without my support,” Heller told Van Jones on CNN’s “Crossfire” Tuesday night.
