Graham Wins Re-Election to U.S. Senate
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) tonight made this statement following his re-election to the U.S. Senate.
"I am honored and humbled by the overwhelming support South Carolinians gave me today.
"Representing South Carolina in the United States Senate is a tremendous honor and opportunity. I appreciate each and every voter who believed in me and supported me for another term. For those who voted for my opponent, I will continue to work to earn their trust and confidence. I want to be a Senator for all South Carolinians.
"As your Senator, I will continue to speak my mind and stand up for South Carolina values. I will continue my common-sense conservative approach to solving problems. And when appropriate for the good of our state and nation, I will seek common ground and work across the aisle.
"In addition to overwhelming support from the Republican base, today's margin of victory clearly demonstrates a strong show of support from Democrats and Independents for which I am very grateful.
"Again, I appreciate the confidence South Carolinians have placed in me, and I will do my best over the next six years to live up to their trust."
