Groveling won’t help, Lindsey. Update to this previous story.
Despite being one of his strongest detractors in the Republican Party, South Carolina senior Sen. Lindsey Graham has congratulated President-elect Donald Trump in a statement.
Released just after most of the major networks called the race for Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, Graham said Trump “defied the odds and overcame many obstacles to achieve a stunning victory.”
However, now the governing begins, Graham said.
“We now have a country to run,” Graham said. “President-elect Trump and the new Congress will face many challenges. We have wars to win, threats to be dealt with, and a stagnant economy which must be revived. To the extent that I can help President-elect Trump, I will do so.”
