WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement on the horrific shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Charleston.
“Our prayers are with the families of the victims and the people of Charleston. We are all heartbroken by this tragedy.
“To the families of the victims, please know that you are being prayed for and loved by so many in the community and across the nation. I pray that God will provide you healing in the coming days.
