ABOUT LINDSEY

In the United States Senate, South Carolina's Lindsey Graham has earned a reputation as a conservative, a problem-solver, and a leader who gets things done. Graham is widely viewed as one of the strongest proponents of a robust national defense and a great friend to our men and women serving in uniform. A frequent visitor to Afghanistan for on-the-ground assessments, Graham has consistently pushed for outcomes in the War on Terror which defend our own long-term national security interests.

Closer to home, Graham has been a leader in cutting spending, reforming entitlements, and getting government out of the way so businesses can create jobs. He has repeatedly voted against Obamacare, opposed Dodd-Frank, and fought President Obama's wasteful stimulus bill. For his work, a prominent national conservative organization honored him as a Taxpayer Hero who puts "the interests of the taxpayer ahead of politics by consistently voting to cut wasteful spending, reduce the tax burden, and make government more accountable to taxpayers."

Graham was elected to the Senate in 2002 and re-elected in 2008, garnering over one million votes and becoming the top vote-getter in South Carolina's history.

He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994 as the first Republican from the Third Congressional District of South Carolina since 1877. Prior to his service in the House, Graham compiled a distinguished record in the United States Air Force as he logged six-and-a-half years of service on active duty as an Air Force lawyer. From 1984-1988, he was assigned overseas and served at Rhein-Main Air Force Base in Germany.

Upon leaving active duty Air Force in 1989, Graham joined the South Carolina Air National Guard where he served until 1995. During the first Gulf War in the early 90's, Graham was called to active duty and served state-side at McEntire Air National Guard Base as Staff Judge Advocate where he prepared members for deployment to the Gulf region.

Graham continues to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and is the only U.S. Senator currently serving in the Guard or Reserves. He is a colonel and is assigned as a Senior Instructor at the Air Force JAG School.

A native South Carolinian, Graham grew up in Central, graduated from D.W. Daniel High School near Clemson, and earned his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of South Carolina. He lives in Seneca and is a member of Corinth Baptist Church.

Senator Lindsey Graham's support of our men and women in uniform is highlighted by his efforts to provide life-saving Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles for our troops. Cpl. Nate Moore, USMC (Ret.) of Greenville, who was in an MRAP that was attacked in Afghanistan: "In 2010 in Afghanistan, I was in an MRAP that was hit by a 120-pound IED. If we would've been in a Humvee, we would have probably been killed. The difference in a properly protected MRAP and a Humvee is life and death. And we have those MRAPs because of Lindsey Graham."

Lindsey and Darline Graham grew up in the small Upstate town of Central where their family owned a restaurant and pool hall. When Lindsey was in college at the University of South Carolina, both of their parents died within 15 months of each other. Darline was 13 years old at the time. "Lindsey assured me that he was going to take care of me, he was going to be there for me. He never let me down. Never. I don't see how he did it, to take on the responsibility of raising a little sister. That came from within for Lindsey."

Each year, America imports nearly $400 billion of foreign oil -- some of which comes from countries that hate us and support radical Islamic terrorists. Our dependence on foreign oil is a threat to our economic and national security. That's why Senator Graham is pushing President Obama to embrace an "all of the above" plan for energy independence, including the Keystone XL pipeline which would import oil from our ally Canada and create jobs in America.
