“The economy needs a tax cut and the Republican Party needs to deliver, so I think we’ll get there,” Graham told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Graham said he believes Republicans will obtain the necessary votes to pass tax-reform legislation, which reportedly could see a vote in the upper chamber as early as Thursday.

The House earlier this month passed its own version of a tax-reform bill, which differs from the legislation currently in the Senate.

In its current form, the Senate bill would delay the cut to the corporate tax rate until 2019.
