Graham on Isakson Retirement Announcement

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the news that U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia) will retire at the end of the year.

“I was very sad to hear that my good friend, Senator Johnny Isakson, will be retiring at the end of the year due to health problems.

“Johnny has become the gold standard for a U.S. Senator.  He is a consensus builder who is admired by all his colleagues for his passion, intellect and kindness.  He is also known for his willingness and ability to solve hard problems across party lines.  As Chairman of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, he has led the charge to dramatically improve the lives of American veterans. 

“Johnny’s legacy of effectiveness for the people of Georgia and the United States will be long-lasting and well-remembered.”
