-- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement on the resignation of Andy Card as White House Chief of Staff.
“Andy served our President well and we should all be appreciative of his loyal and committed service. Serving as White House Chief of Staff is one of the most demanding jobs in government. As the second longest-serving White House Chief of Staff in history, Andy handled the position and its demands with grace.
“As a graduate of the University of the South Carolina, Andy was very familiar with the political landscape of our state. He was also very helpful in meeting the needs of our state’s congressional delegation. I personally appreciate all he has done for South Carolina. I have nothing but high regard for him on both a personal and professional level. He will be greatly missed.”
