WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement today on the intended nomination of Governor Rick Perry to be Secretary of Energy.
“Governor Perry brings a lot to the table as a very successful governor of a large, energy rich state. He espouses the goal of energy independence and has constantly talked about the need for an energy revolution in the United States. He is a great choice to lead DOE which has a substantial impact on South Carolina. I look forward to discussing the future of the Savannah River Site (SRS) with Governor Perry and making the case for how important the site and national lab are to the nation.”
