RELEASE: Graham Launches Statewide Ad Campaign
Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham today launched a statewide ad campaign highlighting his efforts to keep America safe in the fight against Radical Islam.

The significant statewide radio and digital advertising campaign features Graham describing the threat we face from terrorists and the importance of fighting them overseas so we don’t have to fight them on American soil.

“Our country was attacked by Radical Islamists who do not want your car, they don’t want your bank account, they don’t want your television,” Graham says in the ad.  “They want to destroy your way of life.”

The ad highlights include:

  • Graham’s longtime record of standing up for our men and women in uniform
  • The Military Commissions Act – written by Graham – which created the legal framework to prosecute terrorists in military courts. The mastermind of 9/11, Khaled Sheik Mohammed, and other 9/11 conspirators, will be tried through a Military Commission.
  • A March 2014 quote from Fox News national security analyst K.T. McFarland, where she hailed Graham’s leadership: “When you talk, everybody listens.  You are the E.F. Hutton on national security.”

“In the war against Radical Islam, in the struggle to keep our families safe, Lindsey Graham is the conservative leader who gets things done,” the ad concludes.
