WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on voting to confirm Mike Pompeo as President Trump’s new Secretary of State.

“I’m pleased that Mike Pompeo has been confirmed as our new Secretary of State. He is a highly qualified and incredibly competent choice – who enjoys the President’s closest confidence. He will be an outstanding Secretary of State at a time of international upheaval and opportunity.
