WASHINGTON (WCBD) – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) spoke in the Senate Monday night about the historic flooding in South Carolina. He made these statements.
“To the people without power, whose houses are under water, whose cars have been devastated, those who’ve lost loved ones, we’re definitely thinking about you. We’re pulling together in our state.”
“This is sort of the worst of nature coming our way but I think we met it with the best of human nature.”
“We’re not going to ask for a penny more than we need. This is not about fixing problems unrelated to this event. This is about appropriately dealing with this event and nothing more.”
“I cannot tell you from the Charleston shooting to this how tough it’s been for our state. When it’s all said and done we’re going to be together and come out stronger. And to the families who are thinking their world has come to an end, God willing, it will get better. The water will pass and we’ll start surveying the damage, and we’ll help those who need help.”
“To the people of my state, to the first responders, to all who have been involved in trying to take care of your fellow citizens, God bless you.”
