"I believe in the traditional definition of marriage."
Bo Hart (202) 224-5972 or Kevin Bishop (864) 250-1417WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the Supreme Court ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act.
"I believe in the traditional definition of marriage. South Carolinians have repeatedly said that is the definition they support as well.
"I have been a strong supporter of the Defense of Marriage Act. I voted for it as a member of the House of Representatives, and as a Senator wrote a brief to the Supreme Court to uphold this important law. I was disappointed with today's outcome, but respect the Court's decision.
"One key point, today's Supreme Court ruling will not change South Carolina law and I will continue to fight for and defend the traditional definition of marriage."
