Sen. Lindsey Graham visits North Augusta amidst protests

NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WFXG) -

Senator Lindsey Graham was in North Augusta today to answer questions from the North Augusta Chamber of Commerce.

His arrival was marked with protests from those who don't agree with military intervention in Iran.

Protesters were told to leave the public sidewalks outside the Municipal Building because they didn't have a permit.

Senator Graham told FOX54 in a one-on-one interview that he thinks that a military strategy has to be on the table in order for the Iranian government to take the US seriously.

The US and other nations around the world have condemned Iran for enriching uranium. Senator Graham, among others, believe that Iran is doing this in order to construct nuclear weapons.
