EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham voiced his disappointment in President Barack Obama on Tuesday.

The Republican senator addressed the Easley Rotary Club in response to the president's press conference with first responders.

Graham criticized fellow Republicans and the president over a looming budget cut deadline.

"I was, quite frankly, disgusted," Graham said. "We don't need a campaigner in chief. We need a commander in chief. We should be in the White House meeting among ourselves as Republicans and Democrats with presidential leadership to avoid sequestration."

Graham warned of cuts that could happen to the military if a deal is not reached.
