Lindsey Graham got censured by South Carolina Republicans for voting for the infrastructure bill

“The Aiken County Republican Party has overwhelmingly voted to censure U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, citing his support of the behemoth infrastructure bill that recently passed the Senate,” the Aiken Standard reported Saturday.

“The local party this week accused the powerful South Carolina Republican of playing both sides of the political aisle to his advantage, consciously violating Republican principles, backing bills ‘that target our freedoms,’ and, ultimately, wandering too far to the left,” the newspaper explained.

The censure came after Graham voted to pass the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill in the senate

“The bipartisan infrastructure bill is good for South Carolina. It provides much-needed help for our roads, bridges, ports, and expands broadband internet access. I have always been supportive of infrastructure investment and wish we had passed this years ago,” Graham said after the bills passage
