 Fairfield County GOP Censures Senator Lindsey Graham

From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

Tonight at the regular monthly meeting of the Fairfield County Republican Party, members passed a 29-point resolution in favor of censuring South Carolina's U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham.

The yeas carried the evening with 82% of the vote. Many in the party say there is a  continued frustration of many in the party with officials who are elected as Republicans and then seem to forget the platform of the party when they assume office.  

"The Fairfield County Republican Party believes in traditional conservative Republican principles and we expect those who are elected as Republicans to vote like Republicans, not Democrats, and on these 29 issues Senator Graham voted with the Democrats" proclaimed Fairfield County Republican Chairman Kevin S. Thomas.  

 "We find his views and votes on these 29 issues to be unacceptable and as the Republican Primary approaches we are looking for a more conservative candidate to represent us in the United State Senate, someone who votes more like former Senator Jim DeMint than current Senator Lindsey Graham".

Nearly every member of the Fairfield County GOP was in attendance and voted on this Censure Resolution.
