Small Business Lunch at Halls
The King Street Marketing Group and Halls Chophouse are pleased to present Senator Lindsey Graham as our guest speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, August 7th.
Sen. Graham has continually supported all federal efforts to move forward with the deepening of Charleston Harbor, a vital project to the Charleston and state economies. He is a leader in cutting spending, reforming entitlements and getting government out of the way of business.
In the United States Senate, Graham has earned a reputation as a conservative, a problem-solver, and a leader who gets things done. For his work, a prominent national conservative organization honored him as 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 is widely viewed as one of the strongest proponents of a robust national defense and a great friend to our men and women serving in uniform.
He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994 as the first Republican from the Third Congressional District of South Carolina since 1877. Graham was elected to the Senate in 2002, re-elected in 2008 garnering over one million votes and becoming the top vote-getter in South Carolina history. This spring he easily won the Republican primary in his 2014 re-election bid and is "far ahead in the polls" for the November election according to the Post and Courier.
Prior to his service in the House, Graham compiled a distinguished record in the United States Air Force as he logged six-and-a-half years of service on active duty as an Air Force lawyer. From 1984-1988, he was assigned overseas and served at Rhein-Main Air Force Base in Germany.
Upon leaving active duty Air Force in 1989, Graham joined the South Carolina Air National Guard where he served until 1995. During the first Gulf War in the early 90's, Graham was called to active duty and served state-side at McEntire Air National Guard Base as Staff Judge Advocate where he prepared members for deployment to the Gulf region.
Graham continues to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and is one of only two U.S. Senators currently serving in the Guard or Reserves. He is a colonel and is assigned as a Senior Instructor at the Air Force JAG School.
A native South Carolinian, Graham grew up in Central, graduated from D.W. Daniel High School near Clemson, and earned his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of South Carolina.
Each month, Small Business Lunch at Halls features a distinguished speaker from the business, civic or political arenas upstairs at Halls Chophouse with an imaginative three-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Matthew Niessner.
