Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham is asking for federal aid for his home state of South Carolina as it fights raging floods. However, according to CNN, Graham voted to oppose similar aid for New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2013.
“Let’s just get through this thing, and whatever it costs, it costs,” Graham told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on CNN on Monday.
Graham was among the senators who opposed a federal aid package in January 2013 to assist states hit by Hurricane Sandy, but now he doesn’t seem to remember it, according to CNN.
“I’m all for helping the people in New Jersey. I don’t really remember me voting that way,” Graham said to CNN.
When pressed further, Graham said: “Anyway, I don’t really recall that, but I’d be glad to look and tell you why I did vote no, if I did.”
