U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham gives $25,000 to S.C. Republican Party
Funds to support “First in the South” Presidential Preference Primary and GOP candidates
Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina Republicans were thrilled last month when Senator Lindsey Graham contributed $25,000 from his campaign account to the state Republican Party.
“Our party needs investments to spread its conservative, reform message,” said SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly. “Senator Graham recognizes this, and he’s leading the way in Washington with good ideas. He’s also standing strong against Barack Obama’s henchmen here in South Carolina, who are trying their best to kill Boeing’s jobs in Charleston.”
Since 2008, Senator Graham has raised and contributed over $470,000 to the South Carolina Republican Party, most of which was used to assist fellow Republicans in tough elections.
“We need to stop the out-of-control spending. We need to stop growing the government. We need to stop kicking the can down the road and deal with entitlement reform. And we need to stop punishing private companies for creating jobs in right-to-work states like South Carolina,” Senator Graham wrote in a recent fundraising letter for the SCGOP. “To accomplish these things and save the American Dream, we need a new president. I have tremendous faith in the South Carolina Republican Party to help.”
York County GOP Chairman Glenn McCall, who serves as SCGOP National Committeeman, also praised Senator Graham, saying, “Senator Graham is a true statesman and strong voice in Washington. I’m proud of his leadership for South Carolina Republicans.”
