DescriptionWE DID NOT endorse Lindsey Graham when he ran for the seat being vacated by Strom Thurmond six years ago. But after he won, we found ourselves represented by one of the brightest, hardest-working members of the U.S. Senate.

He quickly became an erudite agent of reason and sound policy, taking courageous stands that made him a leader in the Senate.

When his own Republican Party was ready to bring all Senate business to a frozen halt in the face of Democratic obstructionism over judges, he became one of the bipartisan “gang of 14” that refused to play that game. As a result, conservative judges were duly considered and approved.

As a colonel in the Air Force Reserves, Sen. Graham is the only member of the Senate currently serving in the military. No one has been a more steadfast supporter of our nation’s battles in Afghanistan and Iraq — or the once-controversial “surge” strategy of Gen. David Petraeus — with the possible exception of Sen. Graham’s close friend and ally, John McCain.
