South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham wasted no time celebrating Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

“I’m not tired of winning……..Victory!” Graham wrote on Twitter just after the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh.

Graham also expressed gratitude to Maine Sen. Susan Collins and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, two Republicans who were on the fence about voting for Kavanaugh. (RELATED: Confirmed: Kavanaugh Is Now A Supreme Court Justice)

Graham was one of Kavanaugh’s most ardent supporters during the nomination process, mounting a spirited attack against Democrats during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing regarding allegations leveled against the judge.

“This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics,” Graham said during the Sept. 27 hearing.

“Boy, you all want power,” Graham continued. “God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham — that you knew about it and you held it. You had no intention of protecting Dr. Ford. None. She’s as much of a victim as you are.”

Three women came forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when he was in high school and college.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who testified to the Senate Judiciary panel on Sept. 27, alleged Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her in the summer of 1982, when she was 15 and he was 17. Deborah Ramirez claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her in 1983 at a party at Yale, where they both went to school. Julie Swetnick also accused Kavanaugh of being present at parties where girls were allegedly gang-raped.

Kavanaugh denied all of the allegations.

Collins and Flake called on the FBI to conduct a short investigation of the allegations. The White House ordered the probe, which failed to produce evidence corroborating any of the claims about Kavanaugh.
