Graham on Passing of Joe Taylor Jr. of Columbia

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham today made this statement on the passing of Joe Taylor Jr. of Columbia.  

“I was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of my good friend, Joe Taylor.

“Joe was a force in South Carolina business and politics, and a friend to so many. His time as South Carolina’s Secretary of Commerce was one of unprecedented growth for our state.  He was also a strong and challenging voice on the Columbia City Council - always looking out for the taxpayer.

“On a personal level, Joe was one of my earliest supporters, and he and his family have become dear friends. My thoughts and prayers are with Joe’s wonderful family at this difficult time.  Rest in Peace my good friend.”
