A casual conversation between Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) during a committee hearing:
Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., asked Graham during a hearing if he was “working on grandchildren.” The Republican felt the need to invoke the colorful legacy of his fellow South Carolinian in his response.
“Not mine, but others, yeah,” Graham said. “I guess if I did the Strom thing it’s possible. But I better get started.”
When he was 66, the widowed Thurmond remarried to 22-year-old Nancy Moore in 1968. They had four children. Graham, who is single, is 59.
The chances of Lindsey Graham having grandchildren the same way Strom Thurmond got them are about the same as mine.
