Now he gets $193,000 annually as a senator. Since June, 2015 Lindsey Graham also gets $2, 773 of pension per month as a retired reservist.
Thus, the candidate for Presidency is a billionaire, although his net worth is not so impressive, as other candidates have. How does he spend that money?
Most part of his money Lindsey Graham spends for his family. But when he tells “family” he means his younger sister, Darlene, her husband and his two nephews. In fact, Lindsey Graham family is also consisting of his aunt and uncle, who helped him to bring up Darlene, when he lost his parents.
His mother died, when the fellow was just 20. She had Hodgkin’s lymphoma and died at the age of 52. 15 months later her husband followed her. His death was caused by heart attack. Lindsey was just 21 and his sister Darlene was just 13, when they left alone. Lindsey and his sister moved to Seneca (that is 12 miles west from their native town). There his aunt and uncle lived. They helped the fellow to care about his sister. Later Lindsey adopted her. Darlene said in her interview, that her brother is a responsible and kind person, who tried his best to grow her up. It was a hard burden for a young fellow, that’s why he couldn’t save his parents business – and thus he went bust.
Being a senator, Lindsey Graham worked on safety-net programs to help people, who have hard times, to save their business. Besides he is known as the person who always struggles for reducing taxes. His political ideas are explained by his hard period, when he lost his parents and had to survive.
Now his sister lives in Lexington with her husband and two children. She hopes to hear one day that Lindsey Graham married, but her brother remains single. He had never been married – and this fact seems strange to his electorate. The experts say the absence of Lindsey Graham wife can be the reason of his failure at the elections.
Lindsey Graham gave an interview, where he told that “being single doesn’t make a person defective”, although he agreed that most of Americans think, if the person is not partnered to a certain age, it is something wrong with him.
Some comedian actors jokes, that Lindsey Graham gay is, and it is the explanation of his loneness. The politician denies these rumors, telling “he isn’t a gay”.

Security of United States is the main value for the reservist, that’s why he criticizes too loyal policy of Barack Obama. Lindsey Graham: “Obama counterterrorism strategy slammed. At a time when we need resolve the most, we’re sounding retreat.”
