Lindsey Graham: Meal Coordinator for McCain Campaign

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Mon, Aug 18, 2008 at 10:19 AM


Personally, we're yeast roll fans, but we're not going to blame Sen. Lindsey Graham for his reported devotion to Olive Garden's unlimited bread sticks. When you're covering a campaign and you don't have anything else to report on, why not cover the quiet meals the candidate has with his staff and friends in a faux-Tuscan restaurant.

According to McCain's aides, it's not the Arizona senator, but Graham who is a devoted Olive Garden fan.

While Graham may be a fan of the Garden, the Garden is apparently not a fan of Graham, according to campaign finance disclosures. Darden Restaurants, the parent company of Olive Gardens, has donated to fellow S.C. legislators Jim Clyburn and Henry Brown in 2008, but not to Graham's reelection.
