Graham on Governor Haley’s Inaugural Address

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement following South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s inaugural address.  Graham attended the swearing-in ceremony at the State Capital in Columbia. 

“Governor Haley is off to a very good start.  Her inaugural address set the right tone, encouraging cooperation where possible and presenting an optimistic view of our state’s future during difficult times.  The challenges facing state government in the weeks and months ahead are real and enormous.  However, by working together these challenges can be overcome. 

“Her transition team, headed up by David Wilkins, has made very solid choices for key Cabinet positions to serve her Administration.  I believe Governor Haley has dedicated herself to finding common ground and being optimistic in the face of adversity.  Those qualities will serve her well as our Governor.”
