– U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement on the swearing-in of fellow U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina).
“Jim is a great addition to the Senate. I think we’ll be good partners working together to move the conservative reform movement forward. He comes with years of experience in the House of Representatives and will hit the ground running.
“The committees Jim will serve on, particularly the Commerce Committee and the Public Works Committee, will be of great benefit to South Carolina. Between the two of us, our committees will cover a wide variety of issues and we’ll be helpful to our state.
“Jim’s a solid conservative who is open to new ideas about reforming the federal government. I really look forward to serving with him. He’s a first-class guy and a great public servant.”
