Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has been censured by a local party for his vote to support infrastructure. The Aiken County Republican Party silenced the senator this past week.

In a statement following the censure, the county GOP said Graham violated the principles of the South Carolina GOP. They also accused him of acceding to the demands of the “Marxist” agenda of the Democrat Party.

“Support of the Invest in America Act is tantamount to supporting the Socialist Marxist agenda of the House and Senate Democrats who are using climate change as a way to force businesses and private citizens into tyrannical government compliance against our free enterprise system,” said the party.

President Donald Trump has railed against the infrastructure bill and urged Republican senators to vote against it. However, 19 Republicans voted for it anyway.
