WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on the passing of Chrissy Adams, 10th Judicial Circuit Solicitor.
“It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Chrissy Adams. She was a great friend, loving wife, and devoted mother. Professionally she did an outstanding job for the people of the 10th Judicial Circuit. She was a tough-minded prosecutor who worked hard for victims and stood by law enforcement. She was a role model for all young women and will be missed by her family and many friends.”
Lindsey Graham has earned a reputation as a conservative problem-solver and one of the strongest proponents of a robust national defense.
A frequent visitor to American troops stationed overseas for on-the-ground assessments, Graham has consistently pushed for outcomes in the War on Terror which protect our long-term national security interests. One leading conservative recently wrote that when it comes to defending America, "[Lindsey] Graham has been right about more things on foreign policy for longer than just about anyone…if anyone has bragging rights on foreign policy, it is Graham."
Graham is also a leader in cutting spending, reforming entitlements, and getting government out of the way so businesses can create jobs. One national conservative organization called him a Taxpayer Hero who puts "the interests of the taxpayer ahead of politics by consistently voting to cut wasteful spending, reduce the tax burden, and make government more accountable to taxpayers."
Graham was elected to the United States Senate in 2002 and was re-elected in 2008 and 2014. He became the first person in South Carolina history to garner over one million votes in the 2008 general election.
